System Administration Issues


The program maintains one user specific file, netterm.ini. This control file is placed in a user specific application data directory during the program installation by the Installshield installation program, when the Installshield program is run by the end user.  Installshield will determine the proper location of the control file and will insert its location in the following registry key:

HKEY-CURRENT-USER/Software/InterSoft International, Inc./NetTerm/NetTermINI

The control file (as distributed from InterSoft) will be copied by Installshield from the program installation directory to the location specified by the registry entry.  The user specific application data directory is dependent upon the target Microsoft system, refer to Control File Location.

All Programs


Control File Location

The user specific application data directory is dependent upon the target Microsoft system, common locations are:

Windows XP

C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Application Data\InterSoft Common

Windows Vista

C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\InterSoft Common

Windows 7

C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\InterSoft Common

Windows 8

C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\InterSoft Common

Windows 10

C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\InterSoft Common

The term <user> is unique for each individual that has been assigned a log-in on the workstation.

System Administration Installations

In an environment in which it is not desirable for end users to install the application, the installation functions of Installshield to (1) determine the user specific application data directory, (2) create the application specific directory, (3) copy the control file(s) to that directory, and (4) create the appropriate registry entries, must be replaced by your company specific method.  These methods are highly dependent upon the geographic nature of the entity (world wide, country wide, state wide, etc.) and are beyond the scope of this document. System administrators should consult their company's installation policy or the Microsoft documentation for detailed instructions on unique installation requirements.

Program Defaults

If the program cannot locate the user specific control file(s) upon initial startup, the user's unique application directory will be determined with the Microsoft API ShGetSpecialFolderPath using a value of CSIDL_APPDATA. The program will then copy the control file(s) located in the program installation directory to the user's unique application directory, and update the registry to reflect the location of the control file(s).
