I have a startup task that looks like this:


"C:\Program Files (x86)\Git\bin\sh.exe" --login -i "-new_console:t:Git Bash"


/Single /Dir "C:\Dev\SOMEPATH" /icon "%ProgramFiles(x86)%\Git\etc\git.ico"

I have a command (coming from a Visual Studio "external tool", if that matters) to open a new console at a current directory.

C:\Program Files\ConEmu\ConEmu64.exe /Single /Dir DIRNAME

If ConEmu is already open a new tab is opened at the correct directory. If ConEmu isn't open then the Startup tasks for Git shows up instead. How can I ensure that I always get the command I am requesting in a new tab, even if ConEmu isn't already open?

From the build 140908 whats-new

Give more weight to "/dir" ConEmu.exe switch than the same from Task parameter.
