network installation- local plugin, centralized libs
« on: June 16, 2015, 03:52:52 PM »
Hey Itoo,
we have both Forestpro and Railclone. I´d like to have libraries sit on the server, but when uninstalling installing railclone/forestpro on each workstation it also uninstalls reinstalls the libraries. Is there a way to define the place for the libraries, and only update the plugins?

Hi Matthias,

First let me mention, that you might find interesting the new "Creating Libraries" tutorial we published few days ago, covering related "libraries" topic in detail.

By default, the LibraryDir key (set to default "local" library path) is created in Windows Registry under

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Itoo Software\Forest Pack Pro *

storing libraries (like Forest Library) paths. Feel free to set it to any network path wanted and this way share that library between your workstations.

In case of your own predefined libraries these can be mapped easily using Library Browser's interface. Under File - Preferences... you'll find Library Paths section. Here by Add... you can map path to any user library. This way you can build a custom library on a shared drive and map it on all computers that'll use it.

* Please note, that in the 64 bit version of Windows, these registry keys are duplicated under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node.

Kind regards,
