Change directory menu help

Post by *IlyaGinzbirg » 2012-04-02, 11:02 UTC

Right now the help includes the following line
OK Saves the changes made to the file wincmd.ini in the Windows directory.
In my opinion, it should be
... in the Windows directory or in the C:\Documents and Settings\[user name]\Application Data\GHISLER directory

Confirmed at three places:
- Dialog box: Change directory menu
- Configuration - Options
- Dialog box: Change start menu

... in the Windows directory or in the C:\Documents and Settings\[user name]\Application Data\GHISLER directory
Not much better.
1. It should be %Appdata%\GHISLER not the Windows XP specific path.
2. The ini file location is determined by a registry entry, or by commandline or by a combination if you use UseIniInProgramDir
Better:
OK Saves the changes made to the file wincmd.ini
where wincmd.ini is a link to
4. Configuration and switches
b. INI-File settings: wincmd.ini


On this page you will find the following note:
Note: The two ini files are stored in the Windows directory, but the location can be changed using command line parameters. The location of the ini files can also be set in the registry. To do this, the location can be set either at installation time, or using the standalone program inireloc.exe, available on www.ghisler.com, Addons section. Besides, if the file wincmd.ini is located in the Total Commander program directory, you can use the key UseIniInProgramDir (see below).
Maybe it should be mentioned that the windows directory is not the default in newer windows (NT) versions.

Regards
Holger

Not much better either - I will probably add a note that the location can be found in the about box.
