Drag'n'drop file into Shortcut to start WinUAE

Is it possible to drag an ADF, DMS or EXE into a Shortcut for WinUAE and have it run fullscreen with my Host configuration and if possible, the last-used Quickstart system settings?

Just tried it myself, it seems WinUAE doesn't accept files dropped into a shortcut for it.

Quickstart can be set using -cfgparam=quickstart=<quickstart mode>,<compatibility> (for example "A500,0") but current quickstart mode is always ignored when using shortcuts. Append -cfgparam=use_gui=no (or "-s use gui_no") to start emulation immediately, without opening GUI.

You can also set config file and everything using shortcut parameters if needed.

Thanks for the info, Toni, but I'll stick with the present way of doing things. I have my Amiga demos sorted by system and so all I have to do is quickstart on the appropriate system and just select the files from there, resetting each time.

I had thought of double-clicking on the ADF or DMS files to start WinUAE that way, but the EXEs wouldn't work as Windows would complain about me running foreign executables on it.
