start command conflict - Windows vs MSys

Post by kamil »

Ever since I installed MSys, and it has a script that is called start, I can no longer use my F2-v menu shortcut to launch Visual Studio's shell:
start %comspec% /k ""C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 12.0\Common7\Tools\VsDevCmd.bat""

Now whenever I press F2-v, I get a Windows pop-up "Choose the program you want to use to open this file / File: start"

Any ideas how to fix it, so I could have both MSys and my F2-v working from within Far?

Add %comspec% /c to the front of your command or add start to system.executor.excludecmds in far:config.

thank you - that's very helpful.

%comspec% /c works just fine for me.
but just out of curiosity, how do I open/edit far:config?

Just run far:config from the FAR command line.

Use menu filtering: Press CtrlAltF then type exclude.
