Hi, I think all the compiling command like:

"E:/sci/miktex-portable29/miktex/bin/xelatex.exe" -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex

should be write as:

"xelatex.exe" -synctex=1 -interaction=nonstopmode %.tex

In this case, I suggest Texstudio can add a master path for many distributions' bin folder, or simply the user can have an options to add the Miktex/bin's directory to the PATH variable when Texstudio started.

Note: I don't want to put the path "E:/sci/miktex-portable29/miktex/bin" in the Windows System PATH variable, so I would suggest putting this path to local PATH variable associated with the Texstudio's process.

Thanks.

    This is possible via Options -> Build -> Build Options -> Additional Paths -> Commands ($PATH).

    However, there was a bug, so that it does not work in the current release. Will be fixed in the next version.
