run from write-protected media?

  • Krishna Sethuraman

    I use a flash drive that is sometimes write-protected to prevent infection or 'sanitization' by overeager A/V scanners.  As such, I'd like to keep mpxplay from writing to mpxplay.ini/.cue before it exits; under Windows 7, it produces multiple dialogs and system beeps if these files can't be written.

    Could you add a command-line option to have mpxplay skip writing out anything upon exit?  It would help a lot for the way I listen to audio in different ways on various PCs.

    Thanks for a great program.

    UseVariables=1 and StartupType =0 (in mpxplay.ini global section) have to do this, but I haven't tried it. Let me know if it's not enough, I'll look around then.

    This works great.  Also, the app is small enough that I could put copies in two directories (one configured as read-write and one as read-only) in case I wanted to run it in different modes.  Thanks!
