SFWINIPATH

Location of synergy.ini file

WTSupported in traditional Synergy on Windows
WNSupported in Synergy .NET on Windows

 

 

The SFWINIPATH environment variable defines the location of synergy.ini.

Value

The path, including the device, for the directory that contains the synergy.ini file. Path must be the full path specification without any logicals. Do not include the filename (synergy.ini) in this path specification.

Discussion

If the directory specified by SFWINIPATH does not contain a synergy.ini file, or if SFWINIPATH is not defined, the default location is assumed. The default location of the synergy.ini file is synergyde\dbl. (However, since this is just a default file that will be removed during an upgrade or uninstallation, we recommend that you copy this file elsewhere and specify the path to the copied file with SFWINIPATH.)

Note

This logic does not apply to the non‑interactive runtimes (dbs, dbssvc, and dbspriv). If the directory specified by SFWINIPATH does not contain a synergy.ini file, or if SFWINIPATH is not defined, the non‑interactive runtimes do not read the file.

You can run the program synckini in the dbl\bin directory to locate the synergy.ini file that will be accessed.

Do not set SFWINIPATH in the synergy.ini file.
