Company settings .def file

Post by Ian McClain » Mon Jan 31, 2011 1:30 pm

StarNet used to store compay default settings in a .def file under the program files folder, which made it easy to transfer from one computer to another. Where are theses settings stored now?

As of STAR*NET v6.0.42 the Star6.def company options file (and some others) was moved into your %ALLUSERSPROFILE% folder for improved Windows Vista and Windows 7 support.
Windows XP : C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\MicroSurvey\StarNet\V6\
Windows Vista/7 : C:\ProgramData\MicroSurvey\StarNet\V6\
Note: The Application Data and ProgramData folders are hidden by default.

This is described in the STAR*NET Upgrade Notes article: ... icleid=462
