/shcit=<0 to 1> - Start with show compound templates found enabled

/DataFolderHere - Sets the default data folder to be in the application folder. Overrides GUI setting.

/debug=<0 to xx>

5  - Debug Read/Load XLS Files

6  - Debug Compound Templates & S&R

/TIMER - Debugging option. Logs timer events.


For backward compatibility reasons (Pre Gen.IT 2.7), or possibly when running Gen.IT from a network drive, place a file called 'DataFolderHere.ini' in the same folder as the .exe file. This will ensure Gen.IT primarily looks in the folder where the .exe is located for data files. This will cause the user selected default path setting to be ignored and disabled.
