ED:search result em_cmd's start path is set to root

Post by *dindog »

using everything search in current path,"ed:" , the %F %WF still output relative path to %P, so they won't work.

%F and %WF do not provide any kind of path, just the file name:
%F Long file names without path, e.g. Long name.exe

I still have question:
as previous example, search for * in ONE path, then selected all, the internal command cm_PackFiles will get a archiver has relative path to the D:\a, how can I do that in command line? i.e. how can I run em_cmd with start path is %P and a relative filelist to source path

There is no relative path because search shows absolute paths. Try using %L and tell the packer to not pack drive letters.
