SecureCRT - Multiple profiles?
I am having a hard time finding if this can be done, maybe I an not search the right thing.

What I am trying to do is have multiple "profiles" in SecureCRT. I am always moving between different client sites and want to be able to save configs/settings specific to that client in SecureCRT, almost like a separate installation of SecureCRT for each client. Is there a way to do this? Like a separate Icon that will launch SecureCRT with the settings for that client.

Thank You!

Hi Cory,

You may be able to accomplish your goal using the /F command-line option. This option tells SecureCRT what configuration folder location to use when it is launched.

You could configure multiple shortcuts to point to different configuration folders. You would edit the target of the shortcut to use something similar to the following:
"...\SecureCRT.exe" /F "C:\Path\to\client\Config"
Does this help you accomplish your goal?

As a note, you can find a list of all command-line options in the help file. The chapter path is Using the Software / Command-Line Options.
