Editor Command Line Arguments

The following command line options/arguments are available for the editor (cse140.exe).

Command

Description

-inifile <filename>

Specify an ini file (filename only or with a full path) to store the configuration in (the filename must exist or the option is ignored). This can be used as a way to use different profiles or "workspaces", or to run multiple instances simultaneously and independently. This feature uses "portable mode" with the specified ini file. (New v11.9914)

-minimize

(New v14.0203) Causes the editor to automatically minimize itself after some initializations (the editor window may briefly appear before it's minimized)

-msgwindow <name>

(New v11.9914) Specify a custom window name (caption) for the message window. Typically this is never used unless you are intentionally wanting to run more than one instance at a time. Example: -msgwindow instance1

-quietstart

Try to start quietly, without any user prompts like update notifications. (New v9.02)
