I'm trying to make Chromium portable, and according to this page I have to add
--user-data-dir=<dir> as a command line-switch to chromium in order to use a custom directory to save personal data.
This is what I did:
- Downloaded the latest Windows chromium build (http://build.chromium.org/f/chromium/snapshots/Win_Webkit_Latest/4294/chrome-win32.zip)
- Extracted to a directory and within the directory I created a new one named
cd'd to the right directory and executed this command:
However, I noticed no files were made in
userdata and after checking I see that the userdata is saved in
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\Chromium\User Data\Default (the default) instead.
What did I do wrong?
