Command line open

Is it possible to open FastRawViewer  from the command line or a batch process?
I use a batch file to set keyword into photos (side cars - .xmp) as part of my pre-Lightroom process. I would like to call FastRawViewer and tell it to open a specific folder from this .bat file. I have not seen how, and need your help.
Thank you.

Just call

"C:\Program Files\LibRaw\FastRawViewer\FastRawViewer.exe" folder-to-open

If you do not want to open new program window, but reuse current one, set "Run single program instance" in Preferences - Other.

Thank you!
That works!
Is it possible to pass a parameter so that FastRawViewer opens a specific folder also?
This would allow "my.bat" to have FastRawViewer open with "...\MyNewPhotos" and "wife.bat" to open with "...\WifeNewPhotos"
Again, Thanks.

Just pass needed folder as 1st parameter of the command line:


"C:\Program Files\LibRaw\FastRawViewer\FastRawViewer.exe" C:\Users\Pictures\MyNewPhotos


"C:\Program Files\LibRaw\FastRawViewer\FastRawViewer.exe" C:\Users\Pictures\WifeNewPhotos

If folder path contains spaces, do not forget to quote path

"C:\Program Files\LibRaw\FastRawViewer\FastRawViewer.exe" "C:\Users\lexa\My Best Pictures\2014"

Thank you!
That works too!
Lexa has done an outstanding job of answering questions for which I could not find in either on-line help or in the downloaded Version 1.2 User Manual .pdf
Well done and Merry Christmas!

Thank you for the idea, we'll add section 'FRV Command line" to the manual.
