How to find your configuration (INI) file

Post by Scott »

In a default PWB installation the INI file PWB uses is the "PWB.INI" file in the PWB folder. If your PWB application file is located in the "C:\PWB" folder then PWB will be using the following INI file.

C:\PWB\PWB.ini

Any easy test to see if your are looking at the INI file PWB is using for it configuration, change the "[Browser]HomePage=..." to something different, save the file and restart PWB. If the home page does not change you are not looking at the INI file PWB is using.

It is possible to have PWB use an alternate INI file by specifying an INI file to use via the command line that starts PWB. For example, a command line that uses an alternate INI file:

C:\PWB\PWB.exe /INI=\\server\share\folder\PWB.ini

The above command line would tell PWB to use the "PWB.ini" INI file from the server share. In this case then PWB will be using the following INI file.

\\server\share\folder\PWB.ini

To determine if PWB is using the default INI file or a specified INI file look at the Command\Target line that is starting PWB.
