Path-section

Author: roger.wallin@abilita.fi (rogerw)

Hi,

In the ini-file there are a lot of Usys-paths. Can these be removed from your application ini-fil if they aren't used in the ASN-file and nor in your own proc-code? 

Regards RogerW

  1. Hi Roger,

    if you do not use them, why remove the lines?
    They will not cause any trouble to your environment.

    P.S. this is different if you want a "portable uniface"
    see what I posted in connection to the 9.4.01 TRIAL

  2. Hi Roger,

    USYS, USYSBIN and USYSADM are used by Uniface interrnally, even if you are not using them in your assignment files or proc code.
    They have default values, though, if they are not in your ini file, which may be suitable for your application.
    Still, I don't recommend removing these... (see previous poster).

    The others can be removed from your application's ini file. I would not remove them from your development environment, though, just you runtime application environment, since IDF uses some of the others.

    Regards,
    Etienne

  3. Thanks Uli and Etienne,

    I'll inform the one making the installation packages, who has been very angry about all these paths he has to change :-).
    Installing Uniface on every client isn't an alternative, and the customers usually use different mappings to their file-servers. 
    Nowadays the deployment process is very important. I have asked for some easy downloadable Uniface run time version that is able to update itself as changes have been made, and the same behaviour for the application-files. 

    Regards RogerW.

  4. ... more or less the same reasons why I worked on a "portable Uniface" in context with the 9.4.01 TRIAL.

    But because the installation directory is a fixed one, a regular expression replace of the INI file will do the job.

    Uli
