Mobile Total Commander: Total Commander Starter (1.3 ) (14.Feb. 2006)

Run the Total Commander from USB-Devices, CD-Rom, LAN (incl. Plugins, Configurations etc.)

 


Download: 

TCStarter.exe


TCStarter64.exe (64 Bit)


Warning:

This Program is not touching any existing TC-File...but, because you never know: Please create an backupf your TC and try it on your own risk!! (tip: Try it with a save copy of your TC in a temp-directory ;-) )


Installation?

Just copy to into your existing Total-Commander Directory and execute it.

1, At the very first start, the TCStarter.exe is creating copies of your original Ini-files:

wincmd.ini -> wincmd_portable.ini

wcx_ftp.ini -> wcx_ftp_portable.ini.

2. wincmd_portal..ini is getting checked for new invalid entries on every startup (and fixe them with the dynamic path: "%COMMAND_DIR% if possible).

3. Then the Total Commander is called with these Ini-Files (it now works everywere).


What does TCStarter do?

It makes the TC "mobile", working on different drives, in different directories (e.g. Memory-sticks / USB-Devices, CD-Rom, Networks ...).


How does it work?

The TCStarter executes the totalcmd.exe like this:

CurrentDirectory\totalcmd.exe i/=CurrentDirectory\wincmd_portable.ini /f=CurrentDirectory\wcx_ftp_portable.ini

where CurrentDirectory is replaced by the current TC - directory (eg. X:\Totalcmd\, or //myPC/TotalCmd ....whatever ).


 

Remarks:

Runs with totalcmd.exe and wincmd32.exe.

-

Remember: when you use the TCstarter.exe , the wincmd_portal.ini - files are used instaed of the original ini's. Changes in the TC will only effekt the portal- files

-

All the Plugins, Custom - Icons and ButtonBars, should be stored somewere inside the TC-Directory / Subdirectories to work fine with the relative pathes..

-

You can put theTCLauncher.exe also one Directory above the TC (it searches the direct Subdirs. it it can not find TC in the current Directory)

Example: TC is stored here: C:\Programs\Totalcmd\totalcmd.exe

running the Starter here: C:\Programs\TCStarter.exe would also work.


 

Commandline Parameter:

- Commandline parameter can be used like with the original totalcmd.exe

/? shows Info & Settings- Dialog

/f= for custom ftp.ini file-

/i= for custom wincmd.ini file-

you can use different Ini by adding it like usaual to the command-Path. Then it will be used instaed:

TCStarter.exe /i="C:\MyLocalPrograms\totalcmd.ini"


 

Un-installation?

To remove the Programe delete the TCLaunch.exe and the two files: wincmd_portable..ini , wcx_ftp_portable.ini

thats all...


History:

1.0 first release

1.1 first bugfix: error in the File-Import : relative directories in the ini now, get fixed every time the TC starts, to make configs changes in the TC valid for relative dirs.

1.3 second bugfix: problem with uppercase-replacement on import fixed.

- possible to create a Desktop-Shortcut on first startup

Next version (1.4): Plugin import & fix, better Userinterface, Buttonbar import.
