/ini cmd switch opens new instance regardless of configuration

Post by TinyDot » 03 May 2019 21:20

Hi,

I use XYplorer in portable mode and have been trying to keep my user files in a separate folder. For that I use a batch script to launch xyplorer using the /ini switch to point towards the right configuration. Only problem is that when I pass the /ini switch it always opens a new instance regardless of my settings in the configuration. Is this the expected behavior?

Version: XYPlorer Portable 19.90.0100
Command: xyplorer.exe /win=tray /ini=?:\Configurations\XYplorer\ (path To Folder I want to open)
Configuration:
General -> Startup & Exit -> Open command line start path in new tab (CHECKED)
General -> Startup & Exit -> Allow multiple instances (UNCHECKED)

Thanks a lot!

From the help file (allow multiple instances section):
Note that if you use the /ini switch in the command line then you will ALWAYS get a new instance even
if "Allow multiple instances" is unchecked.

I guess I should add that info to the /ini section as well... :ninja:
