Support and Feedback / Quick Look'n'Feel Setup always at startup
« on: December 21, 2019, 15:28:33 »
I'm more than certain that my problem is more unique to the way I use your program, than your program itself.  I use SyMenu ( to organize and update most of my portable programs, and something about the way it does this causes the Quick Look'n'Feel Setup to always start when I start Multi Commander, no matter what option I choose.  Is there a way to turn off the Quick Look'n'Feel at startup manually, even if it's editing configuration files?  It gets pretty annoying after a while.

Tips and Tricks / User Defined Commands and Portable Software

I'm not certain if anyone else has had as much trouble as I have getting the portable version of Multi Commander to work in launching other portable programs, but I was finally able to compose some syntax that does this well, so I thought I'd share it.

I realize you should be able to do this with the External Command Type, but I was never successful with it.  Everything I tried either couldn't find the program, or when the path was successful, gave me "Access Denied".  You can always use a batch script, but then you wind up with an open console window until the external portable program closes.  The best working solution was to use Custom Commands.

For example, if you keep the Multi Commander Portable directory in the same directory as your other portable software (such as \PortableApps), then create a User Command with the Command Type Custom Commands, and the following command syntax:

MC.Run  CMD="${mcinstallpath}\..\FirefoxPortable\FirefoxPortable.exe"

This will work no matter what your folder focus is.  If you need to run the program as Administrator, then type this instead:

MC.Run  CMD="${mcinstallpath}\..\FirefoxPortable\FirefoxPortable.exe" ADMIN

I've found that arguments are relative to the command path, so you can type a portable command with an argument like this:

MC.Run CMD="${mcinstallpath}\..\AutoHotkey\AutoHotkey.exe" ARG="\Scripts\backup.ahk"

I can now create menus and use Multi Commander as a portable program launcher, increasing its usefulness immensely.

Just started using your program because of: copy/move operations that work independently of the main window and that can be queued, ability to create junction links, and customability of menus.  However, I'm running into a few minor annoyances.  I am using the portable 64-bit version, 3.0 (build 1360), on Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.

First, while creating Launchers under Fle Type Setup, relative paths do not work at all, with or without quotes, tags, etc.  They will only work with the absolute path.

Second, if I lock a tab for a network drive, when I close the program and reopen it, the tab reverts to the C: drive instead of remaining mapped to the network drive.

Otherwise, really good product.
