    Default Start IFV two ini files: Screen Capture settings and default

    Hello and thanks in advance for helping me with this. . .
    I want to create two ini files for Irfanview, one the default and the other that will start Irfanview with the screen capture settings I have set.
    I found this post to help with most of it:

    https://irfanview-forum.de/showthrea...ll=1#post41021

    but I do not know how to annotate the ini file properly.
    Is it possible?

    One easy method would be to install both 32-bit and 64-bit versions, and set the capture settings that you want to use for one of them.

    Thanks for your reply . . .
    If I add a short cut for IFV to the start menu it is, esentially the same as this:
    "C:\Program Files\IrfanView\i_view32.exe"

    how can I add (or is there) a 'code' that would open IFV with the capture screen settings already set?
    or can I do this with the .ini file?

    C:\Users\Admin\AppData\Roaming\IrfanViewi_view32.i ni

    [Capture]
    SavePath=C:\Admin\SCR_CAP\
    Window=0
    Rect=0,0,640,480;
    IncludeCursor=0
    VScroll=0
    UseTimer=0
    UseMax=0
    ShowCountdown=0
    MaxShots=99
    CaptureTimer=600.0
    HotKey=107
    Result=3
    CaptureExtension=jpg
    SaveName=duc_###_$U(%d%m%Y_%H%M%S)

    The 32-bit version and 64-bit version use different INI files, so you can have your desired settings saved with the 64-bit version while leaving the default for the 32-bit version.
