Anki Portable, command line in PortableApps Platform

Hi,

Anki Portable is not in PortableApps store unfortunately, so I had to download the official .zip of anki and unzip inside PortableApp folder. To launch Anki you have to provide the location of the data folder on your PC. So I had to provide the data location to Anki, I had to create a anki.bat file with:

    start "" /b "%~dp0anki.exe" -b "%~dp0../../Documents/Flashcards/"

Unfortunately .bat cannot be added to PortableApps Platform.

How can I launch Anki from PortableApps Platform with my flashcard data folder ?

Regards

BAT to EXE

Convert your batch file to an exe, e.g.

1 months has passed, there is

1 months has passed, there is really no possibility to give a command to launch an app in PortableApps Platform ?

It could very easily being done in Windows Start Menu, what about Portable Menu?
I am surprise it is necessary to take the risk to transform a .bat into a .exe just for that.

You can still try to do a paf

You can still try to do a paf-package. The format is described in the Development section.
I don't know, if Anki can easily be made portable, because I had no time to check. You could try posting a Dev-Test in the Beta testing forum. Maybe some people can assist you, if you are interested, even if the development community has dried out a bit.
