Why use aliases? Since all my portable programs are on the same drive as XYplorer, I use ?
to root my paths to a location.
So in your case you could use ?:\programs\autoit\au3.exe
(assuming all your portable stuff is together like mine and on the same drive as XYplorer). I have no hard coded drive letters or paths in my config.
I have not used aliases yet so I guess I will look into them.
You could also use the "get" function to help resolve paths. Get will resolve a volume label to a drive letter and even perform path substitution on the results.
for help file:
Code: Select all
echo <get driveletter "Fun" "C:\Windows">; //F:\Windows
This is something that I suggested as a wish and was added to XYplorer, Thanks Donald!
Hope that helps
