Relative path /../ for OpenWith= in xnview.ini

Post by cadu »

Hi,

I'd appreciate your help.

I'm trying to use relative paths for OpenWith programs, editing the xnview.ini directly. So far no success. Here is an example:

Code: Select all

OpenWith=/../../Program1/Program1.exe, /../../Program2/Program2.exe
Is it possible to use relative paths for OpenWith programs? How to?

Thank you!

Thanks for the feedback Pierre.
By chance, is the functionality implementation in the roadmap?
This would be handy to make XnView truly portable.
Best,
Carlos

I'm referring to the relative path to xnview folder for the programs listed in Open With.

Here an example of the relative path I use in XYplorer file manager to Open With (Inkscape):
<xypath>\..\..\..\AppMedia\Inkscape\bin\inkscape.exe

And here the absolute path, that seems the way XnView refers to the programs:
C:\Apps\AppMedia\Inkscape\bin\inkscape.exe

My point is that by using a relative path, despite the drive (C: E: G: etc.) you trigger XnView Portable from, it will always run the Open With programs.

If you need further information, please let me know.

Thanks for considering it!
