QGIS Start menu shortcut doesn't work with non-default install directory
|Reported by:||Mike Taves||Owned by:|
My setup is installed in a non-default location C:\gnu\OSGeo4W
The Start menu item has the correct target (with 2 extra spaces at end??):
however, when it is selected from the Start menu, I see an error in a cmd console:
The system cannot find the path specified.
and a Windows dialog with "Windows cannot find 'C:\OSGEO4W\apps\qgis\bin\qgis.exe'."
The problem is with qgis.bat:
@echo off SET OSGEO4W_ROOT=C:\OSGeo4W call "%OSGEO4W_ROOT%"\bin\o4w_env.bat @echo off set GDAL_DRIVER_PATH=%OSGEO4W_ROOT%\bin\gdalplugins start "Quantum GIS" /B "%OSGEO4W_ROOT%"\apps\qgis\bin\qgis.exe %*
since it assumes that OSGEO4W_ROOT=C:\OSGeo4W which is not always true.
