That works; thank you!
Last time I tried using ..\ I didn't seem to have any luck, but that could've been because I had an improper variable included...
I'd still like to see %A_UserName% included though
This may help others too:
Libraries folder; this is where things such as gdip should go...
The setup directory; it houses any files needing to be copied in addition to the setup bat file...
- AutoHotkey.ahk - Thanks wolf_II

All of this is dynamic aside from the base folder structure for DropBox... You can put any contents into your AutoHotkey.ahk file inside Dropbox\AutoHotkey\Setup\ and on new machines just run the bat file to have the file copied to my documents ( any existing file will be renamed for backup purposes ), and the libraries symbolic link will be created inside of the AHK installation dir ( any existing folder will be renamed for backup purposes )... Then just run autohotkey.exe - simple...
I'm still hoping to see %A_UserName% included...
Edit: Added config options..
