No, it isn't, unless ... se below :-)

OK, then answer two following cases: 1) I want to start rebol process once I log into Netware server. I put following line into my login script: #F:\path\to\rebol -si F:\path\to\rebol\some-script.r ... and you know what? You will be asked for installation, even if -i switch was used. I can't see it correct, not even practical. If -i switch is supposed to save us from installation, it should do so in all cases.The problem is with edit-prefs.r and prefs.r, which are needed. But how do I tell rebol to look for them on the path given in above launch case? ;-) workaround: #F:\path\to\rebol\app.bat where first line of bat is "cd current-dir" 2) How do env variables help you, if you use several instances of View on your hd? workaround & suggestion - introduce new switch -b (boot), to allow us to specify, what directory should rebol boot from ... possible? -pekr-
