Command line arguments in appinfo.ini

Can I use the appinfo.ini to append commandline arguments to an exe?

I am (again) working on Birthday Reminder Portable and when I install it locally, it has 2 shortcuts in its folder. One just launches "bday.exe" and the other launches "bday.exe 1".
I am trying to get it working with the new PortableApps.com Launcher. It works great but I can only have 1 exe.
Chris said here that appinfo.ini can do commandline arguments but it looks like it cant do them the way I need them Sad

Any hints?

Nope

It doesn't currently support command line arguments.

Then I guess I have to go build my own launchers.

Use the PortableApps.com Launcher. The next release supports multiple launchers.

The latest version (from

The latest version (from Mercurial) does support multiple launchers; it supports command-line parameters too. Just put the appropriate command-line args in the [Launch]->CommandLineArguments section.
