Can I edit search folders in .ini files?
« on: March 24, 2007, 04:44:36 PM »
Hey!

Awesome app this FaRR! Something I always wanted. Just wondering why I can't see my searchfolders in .ini files. Where are they stored? I would like to use FaRR from my USB-drive and its root folders letter is different on different computers. Its tricky to change all the search folders by hand. I'd like to use .ahk script to change those for me. Is it possible? If not, is there another solution?

Thanks.

All the settings and search directories are stored in the FindAndRunRobot.ini file which is in the same directory as the program. You will find the search directories in the section labeled [SearchFolders].

FARR doesnt require an install so you should be able to just copy the FARR directory to a usb drive and run it from there.  And i'm very happy to add more special features to make it easier to run portably if anyone can think of any to request.

Strange...

Here is a snapshot from FaRR.

And this is how my FindAndRunRobot.ini looks like:
-----------------------------------------------
[SearchFolders]
0=200>>>O:\Ohjelmat\FindAndRunRobot\scripts
1=75>>>C:\Documents and Settings\Topi\Työpöytä
2=100>>>C:\Documents and Settings\Topi\Käynnistä-valikko
3=100>>>C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Käynnistä-valikko
4=0>>>C:\Documents and Settings\Topi\Suosikit
5=50<<<C:\Documents and Settings\Topi\Omat tiedostot
6=50<<<O:\PortableApps
-----------------------------------------------
Any idea what's happening here?

it may not update the ini file until you close the options or something like that.. try exiting FARR then checking your ini file again.

Well this is weird. :huh:
I'm quite sure, that I did it many times before and it didn't help. But now it seems to work.
Thanks.

Is it possible to include relative search folders in FaRR?

Could it somehow detect the drive letter of the path where it is running from? If I'm using USB removable it would be nice to write something like USB:\Documents... or use the specific name of the drive like KINGSTON:\Documents...
