RunWithParameters 1.2

by Jan T. Sott

Tiny tool, which allows running any application with
a parameter. Instead of going to the Command Prompt,
users can simply right-click an application and enter
the parameters in the pop-up window.

Unless you are using the setup version, you can install
RunWithParameters using a commandline switch.


This will associate all exe, bat, cmd and com files
with the location the program is run from. You can
undo this with the following commandline switch.


Naturally, the last step can be performed by using
RunWithParameters itself.

Uninstallation using the commandline switch will not
delete the history file. It can be deleted at any
time using the /FLUSH switch.

All versions before 1.0 and all betas do not properly
save parameters containing the |-character.

In version 1.0, a combination of // and /| in a parameter
will lead to errors. This issue depends on a plugin
used and will be fixed at a later time.
