Incognito mode shortcuts not working

Postby Sepe » Tue Apr 29, 2014 12:42 am

In the two newest versions I have not been able to launch the Iron incognito mode (Windows 7 64bit) from the task bar icon OR by making a desktop shortcut for iron with the --incognito or -incognito -switches ( "C:\Program Files (x86)\SRWare Iron\iron.exe" --incognito OR "C:\Program Files (x86)\SRWare Iron\iron.exe" -incognito ). It just does not launch.

I'm sure this also has something to do with Iron.exe now linking to chrome.exe etc.. There must be a way to do this, any hints?

This issue came up first time with version 33, still not working with V34.
As I'm using nothing but incognito mode anyway, I enforce it via registry.

Navigate to these 3 keys:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Chromium\.exe\shell\open\command
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Chromium\.exe\shell\opennewwindow\command
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\ChromiumHTM\shell\open\command

Amend the existing strings with the incognito flag as shown below:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\SRWare Iron\chrome.exe" -incognito -- %*

Launching now chrome.exe always opens a window in incognito mode.

Replace the shortcut to "C:\Program Files (x86)\SRWare Iron\chrome.exe" --incognito

Hello, change shortcut iron.exe for chrome.exe
( "C:\Program Files (x86)\SRWare Iron\iron.exe" --incognito ) no longer works
("C:\Program Files (x86)\SRWare Iron\chrome.exe" --incognito ) if it works

I've got exactly the same problem with google chrome and SRWare Iron. It's really a pain. Anyone got any ideas on how to workaround this?

appending anything to the target field in properties does nothing. Not even in regedit.

I tried the suggestion from Sepe above and it works for me:

In your shortcut, change the target from iron.exe for chrome.exe -
Instead of
("C:\Program Files (x86)\SRWare Iron\iron.exe" --incognito )
use
("C:\Program Files (x86)\SRWare Iron\chrome.exe" --incognito )
