I want to start Company of Heroes game with the -dev mode but not through the shortcut but using the original .exe. Is there any way to bind the .exe with this flag so that it opens all the time using that flag?

I tried everything I could from the Internet. I created a shortcut and made it run through a .bat file and then converted the .bat file to an .exe file but the file is not being detected as the original file.

I want to use the .exe file with the GameRanger software.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Is it not possible to point the GameRanger to the shortcut instead of the .exe? – Michael K Mar 21 '13 at 10:41
I tried to point to a shortcut link but what it actually does is trace the path to the original file and starts from there and not from the shortcut. This is why I am not able to run in -dev mode. – Biman Ghosh Mar 21 '13 at 12:21
