Issue starting from command line

Recommended Posts

I have a quick question that is computer related. I do not want to post this to the Hero Designer forum because this is a computer issue not a HD issue.


When I load HD6 on the laptop I carry around the font is simply too small to see.  The solution is to launch HD from the command line (or create a batch script) with the following:

javaw -jar HD6.jar [font size]

for example, the following would set the default font size throughout the application to 18pt:

javaw -jar HD6.jar 18

My problem is I cannot get my Windows 10 Home computer to let me change to the directory I need and if I modify a shortcut in the directory it will not start.

I know I did this on a different machine a few years ago but apparently I cannot duplicate the feat. 

Any input welcome.

Offhand, sounds like you're running afoul of Windows' UAC. Do you have HD beneath "C:\Program Files" or some other directory that you do not have full access to?


You were correct.  I had it running on my D drive and even though I used the administrator login it gave me the electronic finger.   So I just moved the folder to the C drive and everything is fine. 

So I'll just leave it there.  :)


Thanks for the quick reply.
