Board » Technical Discussion » Batch file that can create multiple instances of qtVlm

I've created a batch file for windows that allows you to set up and run independently multiple instances of qtVlm of a single install. Download the attached file, read the instructions in the header and make the changes to the file as needed. Tested with Version : 5.10-9-p4 (meltemus) (Dec 30 2021)
Qt 5.15.6

Works just like you said :-)

QT 10 xx -p4
Windas 10
After an intial mistake I made in changing the directory name in 'qtVlmLoc=...' all works.

Did not now your use of 'mklink /H' and 'mklink /J' in 'qtLinks_1.bat'
Clever.

I learned something new for me.
Thank you.

Compete with yourself; share with all
Just a quick word of caution. It is only tested with the latest version of qt. I would not try and use it with any other version. It may work with future releases, provided qtVlm do not add any new files to the release.
Works for the latest version 5.10-10
New file for the latest version of qtVlm

New file for the latest version (5.10-18)

New version that supports V15.12.0.

IMPORTANT: This is a significantly different version from previous ones. You need to delete all the folders in the target folder (where you run qtLinks.bat from) before running the linking batch file.

I've also included the batch file I use to launch qt from my race folder, which you can edit to suit.

Note: I did have an issue with one of my instances which kept crashing. Copying the qtVlm.ini from a working instance and overwriting the fault one fixed it. Obviously, you will need to edit the Configurations as they will be the same as the source instance.

Newport Bermuda Race 2024


The 636-mile biennial Newport Bermuda Race is one of the oldest regularly scheduled ocean races, and with the Fastnet Race and the Sydney to Hobart Race, it is one of the three great classic races of the yachting world.

Entries are invited for one of the four divisions:
Double-Handed Division:
Jeanneau Sun Fast 3600
