Win95 Start Menu

I was searching though DSP today a found a file called odmenu.zip which allows you to create menus similar to the Windows 95 start menu (ie, with the vertical bitmap).

The shortcut to this file was missing.  I was wondering if anyone knew where I could get this component now, or, if there is anything similar floating around somewhere.

Im am using D2 if that helps at all.

Thanks,

Stuart

(PS.  Please do not leave answers about how to place individual bitmaps on MenuIems - I already know how to do this).

I found this on DSP:

CoolMenus ver 2.0 27-May-97   SW
--------------------------------

Copyright (C) 1997 by Artem A. Berman
For Delphi 2.0 (32 bit) / Delphi 1.0 (16 bit)

With this package you can use any available font (any style/size/color), any picture (icon/bitmap/metafile), any cursor, any color, any wallpaper (tile or center) and cool vertical bar (can be painted as gradient or not)
with text in your menus without additional code. Helps and samples are available.
------------------------------------------
This file is coolmenu.zip if you are interested.  I have it on my computer here if you can't find it.

I tried to get it again on DSP---seems their file system or search system is unreliable.  I couldn't find it again.  But I did find where you can download it.  If you search DSP for the author---Berman you will get his homepage.  Here is where his delphi stuff is (including coolmenus.zip which you can download).

Hope you find it.
BTW it is shareware ($15 w/o source and $29 w/ source)

I don't get it, I answer the question and even give you the exact address of how to get it and you give me a C-----thats great (Not!).  What more do you want?  How much more could I have done?  For the information I gave you, I at least deserved a A.  Hell I even told you the price of the thing.
