The below code should do what Mediadogg says (step 5 of his instructions):

Quote:

@ECHO OFF

IF /i %1% == book GOTO StartBookProfiler
IF /i %1% == wine GOTO StartWineProfiler
GOTO StartDVDProfiler

:StartBookProfiler
    copy bookdb.dpt onto FauxLanguage.dpt
    start DVDProfiler with /CommandFile=c:\bookdb.txt
GOTO :EOF

:StartWineProfiler
    copy winedb.dpt onto FauxLanguage.dpt
    start DVDProfiler with /CommandFile=c:\winedb.txt
GOTO :EOF

:StartDVDProfiler
    copy yourlanguage.dpt onto FauxLanguage.dpt
    start DVDProfiler with /CommandFile=c:\Default.txt
GOTO :EOF


It's currently set up for wine, book, and regular but you should be able to easily add any other 'Profilers' you make. also, you'll need to change file names and possibly directory locations depending on where you save the file, pretty sure from mediadogg's example it needs to be in the location of the translation file. Also it's case insensative so "StartDVDPro WINE" is the same as "StartDVDPro wine"

Thanks mediadogg, great solution! 

And thanks Agrare, but the given batch code doesn't work that way yet (maybe only on Vista/7 ?). Here's a modified, working example – at least on WinXP:

StartProfiler.bat
Quote:

@ECHO OFF

IF /I "%1%" == "book" (
  GOTO StartBookProfiler
) ELSE IF /I "%1%" == "wine" (
  GOTO StartWineProfiler
) ELSE (
  GOTO StartDVDProfiler
)

:StartBookProfiler
  COPY /Y "D:\AppData\DVD Profiler\Translations\BookProfiler.dpt" "D:\AppData\DVD Profiler\Translations\StartUp.dpt" > nul
  START "" "C:\Programs\DVD Profiler\dvdpro.exe" /CommandFile="D:\DVD Profiler\BookProfiler.txt"
  GOTO :EOF

:StartWineProfiler
  COPY /Y "D:\AppData\DVD Profiler\Translations\WineProfiler.dpt" "D:\AppData\DVD Profiler\Translations\StartUp.dpt" > nul
  START "" "C:\Programs\DVD Profiler\dvdpro.exe" /CommandFile="D:\DVD Profiler\WineProfiler.txt"
  GOTO :EOF

:StartDVDProfiler
  COPY /Y "D:\AppData\DVD Profiler\Translations\DVDProfiler.dpt" "D:\AppData\DVD Profiler\Translations\StartUp.dpt" > nul
  START "" "C:\Programs\DVD Profiler\dvdpro.exe" /CommandFile="D:\DVD Profiler\DVDProfiler.txt"
  GOTO :EOF



You can save the StartProfiler.bat and the command files wherever you want, if you use complete paths (like in my example; and note the quotes around paths with spaces).
EDIT: The command files have to be specified with complete paths anyway.

As a last step create three shortcuts with these lines as their targets (of course you have to change the path to the batch file depending on its location):

"D:\DVD Profiler\StartProfiler.bat" book
"D:\DVD Profiler\StartProfiler.bat" wine
"D:\DVD Profiler\StartProfiler.bat"



A hint on number (2): After you have copied the language file and named it "FauxLanguage.dpt" or whatever, the chosen language will be listed twice in DVD Profiler, because DVD Profiler uses the string that's saved inside the file, not the filename itself. So, if the language doesn't change the first time you try out the batch, you just have to switch to the other one.

I didn't actually test it cause I don't have DVDProfiler installed on this computer. But in my defense I did say that you possibly need to change the file locations. I just took mediadoggs psuedo code and made it real code. When I tested I just had it echo the the commands mediadogg provided. I probably should have stated that in my post.

Also, the nested IF ELSES gets ugly so its probably easier to add additional Profilers if you just do a series of IF statements, with the GOTO statement it wont execute the other if clauses anyway

and to solve the listing the language file twice problem, instead of FauxLanguage.dpt just call the file FauxLanguage.tmp or any other made up file extension you want

I didn't mean to dis you or your example, I just wanted to provide a bug-fixed version.

Of course, you've got a point here. It's easier that way if you don't code yourself.

You're right, that's a good idea.
