[solved] Launch Zotero with custom profile folder path


By default when I launch Zotero Standalone it creates the folder

C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\Zotero\Zotero

This folder contains another folder "Profiles" and "profiles.ini".

I want to make Zotero Standalone fully portable.

Thus, I am looking for a cmd command to tell Zotero a different path for the profile folder "Zotero" at start-up.

Is this possible?
  • I found out about Zotero's -proile option that can even use relative paths. Example:

    zotero.exe -profile "..\..\Data\profile"
