How to get my options when using a shortcut

I keep a shortcut to VideoReDo.Vprj on my desktop, it points to the directory at:

C:\Users\me\AppData\Roaming\VideoReDo-TVSuite5

that when invoked loads vrd using the project which is automatically saved upon exit previously. However, the options, in particular my options for navigation, are not my normal options, but appear to be the default values. So, instead of using the shortcut, I have to run vrd normally, and then drag/drop VideoReDo.Vprj on top of the vrd window. Then it loads that project and uses my saved options.

Is there a way to make it use my saved options when invoking vrd via the shortcut to the project file?

The options are all stored in the registry, so there is no reason thatshould happen. Do you have multiple copies of VRD installed? Maybe the vprj file association is pointing to a different version?

Ahhh, yes, I haven't updated in quite some time and when I last did, I created another version using it's own registry entries - this was when there were still betas, which is why I made a separate install.

Can you remind me how it chooses which one to run? I'm writing COM scripts lately and I seem to recall I had to do something to get it to choose the right version when I startup using VideoReDo5.Application as the com object.

I've also got the shortcut working now by specifying the full command line including the full path to the latest version instead of just the project file, so it now uses my most recent one.

For COM just run the batch manager from the tools menu. It'll check if it's the version registered with COM and offer to register it if it's not.
