How can I set 'start in' parameter for any program in Farr?
« on: February 23, 2011, 04:59:20 AM »
I defined some alias for programs in Farr. When I launch it from Farr, I find the 'start in' path always in installing directory of that program. I would not like to build shortcuts and setup 'start in' one by one for all programs. Any good idea to deal with that in Farr?

that is an interesting question..
currently there is no way to do this short of what you describe -- making standard windows shortcut files and having farr trigger the shortcuts.

if this was something people needed i could add an alias launching flag that allowed it to be specified.. but frankly i think you are the first to request it.

Thanks Mouser's reply. I have tried to define alias for 'start /d path programname', unfortunatly, FARR does not work. If I build bat file for  'start /d path programname' and then define alias for the bat file, it is ok. But it is a hard work to build bat files for a lots programs (almost equals to build shotcut and then set start in parameter one by one). I hope 'start in' setting can appear in future FARR version.
