TOPIC: create a profile? initiate multiple ini's from one

create a profile? initiate multiple ini's from one 5 Years, 7 Months ago  
Hi. I was wondering if there was a way to create a profile based on certain settings.
For example, say I created a setup on my screen using several ini files for various things and placed on the correct locations on my screen. Can I now save this profile as profile1. Then everytime I choose profile1, it starts all the individual ini's and places them on the correct location on the screen.

The reason I'm asking is because at work I use an external monitor for my laptop. Once I do that the screen resolution changes and all the individual ini's are now not in the correct location where I need them. I now need to select each ini's alternate location to fix this.

You can use the -c (or --config) command line argument to choose the location of the configuration file. That way you could just create multiple shortcuts for Rainlendar which each would use a different configuration.

Would that path be relative to Rainmeter.exe? I make a folder called Profiles in the same directory as rainmeter.exe then make folders under that containing the other rainmeter.ini files. Would the command line be rainmeter.exe -c \Profiles\Sample\rainmeter.ini

Sorry, I didn't notice that this was for Rainmeter. The -c command line argument work only with Rainlendar. Rainmeter needs to be installed multiple times since the rainmeter.ini is always read from the same folder where the exe is located.

Ahh. Ok then, I may be able to make another way of doing it. I'll post back here when I have something for testing.

It wouldn't be difficult to just make a simple script or program that checked for certain settings (i.e. your monitor resolution) and then changed the names of the files to set the correct file to be rainmeter.ini
