Default REQ: Relative paths

Hi

FlashFXP is nice piece of software. So nice that I even tranaslated it . But I have little request. Currently seems that FlashFXP doesn't use relative paths for download folders, log folders, etc. So if using FlashFXP Portable in USB drive (with other portable apps and important files) then swithicng between desktop PC and Laptop USB drive gets different drive letters and therefor it's little bit annoying to keep it always mind and changing everytime. Using formulas like "..\..\Downloads" which starts from FlashFXP own folder elliminates this double work every time. So it would for example download always new files two folders higher from FlashFXP folder and keeping these there in Downloads folder. Same with log files. Now it uses absolute paths for these settings. Or at least I couldn't make these work as relative paths. Otherwise this program seems to be perfect. : )

Hello,

Thank you for bringing this to my attention.

This makes perfect sense and I'm not entirely sure why we didn't think of this, this is going to be an obvious issue for anyone using the portable edition on different computers where the drive letter changes.

I will add support for ..\ and .\ expanding the path relative to flashfxp.exe

This functionality will be available for the download and the log folder locations.

Good idea, I'll sneak that into the next build.
