vrf Search path to the vee.io file

OK, This is what I thought and feared.

For most of the time the vee.io path will be given as a command line
option, so Ill be able to extract the info from that. The cases where the
%HOME% or Local settings search path will be valid is mainly during
development, which is something I can live with.

Thanks for the effort any way.

Man, I don't see any way to do it either. However...

Welp, screw that. I was going to say that it's just a tree view and you can
suck the path right out of it, but ... after all these years and all the
pain that using non-standard window objects has caused...

The Instrument Manager is NOT composed of standard window objects. So, so
much for that idea. You can't send messages to a window you can't identify.

Sorry about that Chris. This really ought to be an ultra simple Windows 101
problem. I'm sure that if you *really* really wanted to figure it out you
could track down the right one, but the heck with that

What you can do is, as you said, duplicate VEE's search path. As far as I
can see that's the only way to get it done. Note that you have the
functions
getEnv and commandLine to help figure it out.
