Arguments to Start-up commands

Postby BeeryHolstein » 14.10.2006 22:35:23


How can I specify argument for a start-up comment for a desktop?

It seems like Dexopt 1.4 is confused from spaces (betweem program and arguments). Also wrapping in "-s doesn't help as Dexopt reject and switches to the default desktop

Anything following the first space character is treated as a command line argument. If the path to the file you want to start contains spaces, you have to enclose it in quotation marks.

Code: Select all

cmd.exe /K dir
"C:\Dokumente und Einstellungen\Patrick\Desktop\dexexe\dexpot.exe" -e

I had trouble feeding the following command to Dexpot for auto start-up and got it running through a standalone bat file. While fed to Dexpot at "face value", the last bit of the command is not fully passed to Vim and ends up creating an empty buffered with weird names
c:\Vim\vim82\gvim.exe +VimwikiMakeDiaryNote --cmd "let g:prosession_on_startup=0"

The solution to is create the following bat file, and pass the full address of such bat file into the "Command:" field on Dexpot's Configure Desktops/Start-up tab.

@echo off
start /B c:\Vim\vim82\gvim.exe +VimwikiMakeDiaryNote --cmd "let g:prosession_on_startup=0"

Return to “Support”
