He's completely right. I've had this on my list of FAQ todo list for too long because I couldn't decide if I should use a batch file or what. Does this work?Specular wrote:Do you think the line in the entry '... and launch with TreeSheets -p' will make sense to users? I mean, anyone technical will get it but wondering if there should be some FAQ link about it.
Q: How do I launch a program with extras characters like "program.exe -portable"?
A: There are two ways to do this:
- Use a launcher - The simplest way is to use a launcher program like Pstart, Asuite, or Splat you can enter the extra characters in a separate blank labeled "arguments" or "parameters". Examples:
- Create a batch file
- Before you begin, unless you use a custom File Manager, you may need to disable the Windows feature that hides file extensions (e.g. .DOC, .MP3, etc.)
- In the same folder as the program you want to launch, create an empty text file.
- In this file, paste the launch code exactly as you see it in the entry. For example, the entry says to launch TreeSheets.exe -p, paste the italicized text and save.
- Save the text file and rename it launch.bat and then double-click on the file.
