Is there a way to start Q-Dir with a parameter of path for Explorer-Views?
The Quad-Directory-Explorer startup parameters or arguments for folders eg. directories:
Parameter Example 1:
Folder Path for all four File Explorer Views
Q-Dir "c:\" "d:\" "e:\" "f:\"
Parameter Example 2:
Folder Path for Explorer View 1
Q Dir.exe "D:\New Folder (2)"
Please use ► ... if possible the latest Q-Dir file manager version!
That's what I had tried, but without quotation marks. And always get the message: 'Failed to open the source file'. And I'm so in the next issue.
Q Dir.exe "Z: \" - works in the program directory, but
"C:\Program Files\Q-Dir\Q-Dir.exe" "Z:\" - from a bat does not work!
From the bat, you should use environment variable:
Maybe, the folder "Program Files" does not exist ;-)
Path Parameter Example 3:
"C:\Program Files\Q-Dir\Q Dir.exe" "Z:\"
Better Path Parameter Example 4:
"%Program Files%\Q-Dir\Q-Dir.exe" "Z: \"
To environment variable:
Maybe, the folder "Program Files" does not exist in the CMD :-).

- How to open current folder in Q-Dir from a command line?It works fine for full path:
I encounter one problem, though.
To keep this short. I wrote a simple batch file called C:\test.bat as such:
Then, in Q-Dir, I added new Program entry at Options->Programs as such:
test.bat=C:\test.bat=%curdir% %curdir1% %curdir2% %curdir3% %curdir4%
Now, the problem is, if I turn on 2x2 view layout and I change directories to i.e. C:\ in the 1st view, D:\ in 2nd, E:\ in 3rd and F:\ in 4th (my disk partitions) then after starting test.bat i.e. from within the 3rd view, where path is E:\, the output I get is:
I wanted to add WinDiff or a similar application that compares 2 folders, but whatever variable (%curdir%, %curdir1% etc.) I use in the program entry as the parameter it is always replaced with the path to the currently active directory.
That shoudn't be I think. Maybe I am missing something. Please help.
