If it is possible, detailed description will be appreciated.

Thanks,

keep sites.dat somewhere in a commonly accessable location such as main file server and run both clients pointing to it.

You can add a registry setting HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\FlashFXP\3\, String Value DATAPATH, and set it equal to the directory where you want your shared settings to be.

I think that after importing sites list from the some location in the LAN is not a solution because a list of FlashFXP becomes static and will not be updated if there will be some changes in the original list on the LAN.

After adding a regitry key 'DATAPATH' what have I to do? To import list? It does not retrieves the list automatically.

Thanks in advance,
Caesar

After setting the datapath flashfxp should look in that location first for the settings and such. For the other pc's you must do the same, pointing the datapath to the remote location. It should then load its settings and sitelist from there.

just point flashfxp to that remote location and load it like usual.

I want to do this, and have put the registry key in, but it's not working. it doesn't load any sites.dat file at all, just creates a new one in the default install location C:\Program Files\FlashFXP

* FlashFXP v[3].[4], build [1145], [X]registered, [ ]unregistered, [ ]pirated
* OS [ ] Vista, [X] WinXP, [ ] Win2K, [ ] Win98, [ ] WinME, [ ] Other (explain)
* Running behind hardware router/firewall [X] Yes & Model [Cisco PIX], [ ] No, [ ] Not sure
* Running software firewall [ ] Yes, Name [ ], Ver. [ ], or [X] No
* Running Antivirus [X] Yes, Name [Symantec] or [ ] No
* Network [X] DSL, [ ] CABLE, [ ] Dail-Up, [ ] Other

Please help!

I exported my registry key using regedit to show you how it should look

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\FlashFXP\3]
"DATAPATH"="Z:\AppData\FlashFXP\"

Yes that's what I have too. Could this because of the version I have? Or the fact that I choose the option to have a single data/settings location not one per user during the install?

Yeah that could be possible, those installer settings can use the same registry key depending on which options you selected, during install would be the best time to select a custom data folder and point it to wherever you wanted.

The problem is that I have rolled this software out to over 50 user PCs (we purchased bulk licenses). I don't really want to have to install it again, it would mean a change to the package and uninstalling it first, then re-installing, which would take a long time. If I could simply roll out some registry changes, that would be the easiest and best solution. Could you look into this for me please?

If you want me to raise an official support request using your email form let me know.

I'm a domain administrator and have been trying this but I can't even get it to work, so it's not an issue with rights/permissions.

Thanks

For future reference, I would recommend using the online contact form for priority support. The forums are a bit laid back and mostly community supported.


After researching this problem it looks like the variable name "DataPath" was incorrect, I was under the impression that "DataPath" is the key we used in v3.4 based on the help file however our helpfile is incorrect.

The correct variable is "DataFolder"

In addition you should make this change inside of HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and not HKEY_CURRENT_USER

So it would look like this

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\FlashFXP\3]
"DataFolder"="Z:\AppData\FlashFXP\"


During the FlashFXP installation if you selected the Per-user application data setting option it will override the "datafolder" key, the registry key for this is "AppData" in the same location as "DataFolder"

You need to change the value from 1 to 0 or you can even remove the key.

Below is an example of disabling per user data settings
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\FlashFXP\3]
"AppData"=dword:00000000


I tested all of this with v3.4 so it should work for you.
