I've been trying to leverage the Launcher.ini operations of PortableApps for easy file renaming and moving. However, I can't for the life of me figure out why my current, minimal, setup is not working as intended. I'm not interested in the app itself, more so the executing of the Launcher.ini.
You can find the entire directory structure for my portable app: UserConfigPortable on https://github.com/Kreger51/UserConfigPortable. What am I doing wrong? I based myself off of the Audacity structure and commands. As described in the repo's README, I would expect that when I open UserConfigPortable via the PortableApps menu, the value in Data/settings.cfg is set to success. Unfortunately, this is not the case.
First, am I correct in assuming that Launcher.ini is executed when the application is launched? Or is it when PortableApps is launched via Start.exe. In any case, the aforementioned value does not get correctly renamed.
Of course, if there's an easier, less messy way to easily do file parsing and replacing operations, that would be acceptable as well. I had been using Autohotkey to perform the job, but find it terribly slow on my Windows 8 machine (it runs super fast in Windows 7).
If this matters, my goal, for now, is to correctly set the drive letter for:
- ConEmu background picture settings
- SumatraPDF inverse search
Thanks in advance.
