Chrome portable with user data dir option

I am trying to get chrome portable to use a directory I have used with normal chrome using the --user-data-dir= switch. However the portable version doesn't pull the info. I have not tried doing a fresh one but do plan on that.

My end goal is to have multiple directories, one each for various profiles, and have them truly portable. I am guessing I will need relative links in the --user-data-dir= switch also. Is this possible with the portable version?

For instance:
GoogleChromePortable.exe --user-data-dir="..\ChromeProfiles\Profile1"

Already Used

This command line switch is already used within Google Chrome Portable itself. Grab the GoogleChromePortable.ini from Other\Source and copy it back to the GoogleChromePortable directory and use the ProfileDirectory= entry if you want to redirect it. Command line redirects called into GoogleChromePortable.exe are not supported.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

I've tried to create additional googlecromeportable folders as 2nd, 3rd etc, while copying the launcher and the ini file (with a redirection of the main paths to the original googlechromeportable), but no success.
Can You plese suggest how to do it?

Thanks a lot!
