Ok, I already have a problem with this.

It doesn't work if the folder from which the application is launched
is different from C: (a user reported it).
In that case the changedir command won't end into the right folder.
So the idea would be to change it to:

cd "%OSGEO4W_ROOT%\apps\udig-dev"
@start /B "BeeGIS" "udig_internal.exe" --launcher.ini beegis.ini %*

But in that case if someone installs on a disk different from c:, that
would not work also.

Is there a variable that tells me the disk in which the installation occurred?
So that I could do:

cd "%OSGEO4W_ROOT%\apps\udig-dev"
@start /B "BeeGIS" "udig_internal.exe" --launcher.ini beegis.ini %*

Any other idea?
