I'm writing in reference to Carl's recent (last October, here: Xywrite Portable
installation. I'm about to travel and will load it onto a memory stick, and
I'm running into trouble trying to make the CDD section in its xywwweb.reg
file portable. If a listing in the CDD section is hard coded to my own set
up, say, like this:

. . . etc

it would not be portable unless the computer I'm working on had the same
drive letter for the DOCS directory, would it? When I try


which I thought would point to editor's directory, I get the error message,
"Bad dir c:\xywrite\editor.exe." No luck either with


which, from startup.int, holds the current directory of editor, or so I
thought. Clearly my primitive understanding of how things work is not up to
task. Wondering if any of you have suggestions. Carl, you'd solve this in a
trice, if you're willing . . .
