Iron Portable ignores --user-data-dir

Postby BlueTablet » Thu Mar 30, 2017 2:07 pm

On Chrome 57.0.2987.133 x64, run this command line:

Code: Select all

chrome.exe --user-data-dir=%TMP%\chdata
and Chrome creates %TMP%\chdata directory and writes data there.

Also on Iron 56.0.2950.1 x64 portable, run this command line:

Code: Select all

IronPortable.exe --user-data-dir=%TMP%\chdata
and Iron creates %TMP%\chdata directory and writes data there.

But Iron 57.0.3000.0 x64 portable with the exactly same command line ignores --user-data-dir. It creates Profile directory in the IronPortable.exe directory and writes data there.

Tested on Windows 10 1607 x64.

Using IronPortable with --user-data-dir makes no sense. Please use the normal Iron version for this.

Using IronPortable with --user-data-dir makes so much sense that I've been using it for switching data.

You could create a shortcut in the IronPortable root-dir and point it to Iron/chrome.exe --user......
