My application creates databases dinamically at runtime. To use Squirrel with those databases, I clone and modify a template alias, but this is quite annoying and error prone.

I wonder if there's a way for my program to start Squirrel and immediately make it connecting to an alias generated on the fly.

What I tried
I put my alias configuration in a file named SQLAliases23.xml in a newly created directory, and launched Squirrel with -settingsdir pointed to that directory. Unfortunately the program doesn't even start, and I'm not able to see any error message
