This section explains how to change the folders where CAST AIP applications store data that is required for correct functioning. To do so, you need to modify a file named named CastGlobalSettings.ini located located in the CAST AIP installation folder (i.e. where the CAST AIP executables such as CAST-MS.exe are stored). This file uses the standard .ini syntax, i.e. lines starting with a semi-colon are comments, and each line should contain a key-value pair, written as follows:
There are various keys that can be used to override where CAST AIP stores data:
Microsoft Windows and CAST AIP environment variables
All "key-value" pairings in the CastGlobalSettings.ini file use a mixture of Microsoft Windows environment variables and CAST AIP specific environment variables:
Microsoft Windows environment variables
Variables enclosed using the % character are Windows environment variables. An explanation of these variables can be viewed here (third-party website).
CAST AIP environment variables
Variables enclosed using the $ character are variables specific to CAST AIP and are used to define the name of folders on disk:
|This option will match the current major release version number. In other words, i.e.: "8" in the release number "8.2.1".|
|This option will match the current minor release version number. In other words, i.e.: "2" in the release number "8.2.1".|
This option will match the current Service Pack release version number. In other words, i.e.: "1" in the release number "8.2.1".
