FAQ 54 OF 101

Is there a way to start Q-Dir with a parameter of path? E.g, I can do this with?

Q-Dir startup parameters or arguments for folders eg. directories:

Yes Q-Dir "c:\" "d:\" "e:\" "f:\"

Subsidiary question:
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 ;-)

"C:\Program Files\Q-Dir\Q Dir.exe" "Z:\"
Better: "%Program Files%\Q-Dir\Q-Dir.exe" "Z: \"

To environment variable:

Maybe, the folder "Program Files" does not exist in the CMD :-).

Asked questions on this answer:
I encounter one problem, though. To keep this short. I wrote a simple batch file called C:\test.bat as such:
echo %1
echo %2
echo %3
echo %4
echo %5

Then, in Q-Dir, I added new Program entry at Options->Programs as such:

test.bat=C:\test.bat=%curdir% %curdir1% %curdir2% %curdir3% %curdir4%

and saved.

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.
