DADiSP 6.7 B02 Release Notes


DADiSP 6.7 automatically detects if it is running under Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, Window 10 or higher and configures the Labbook and temporary file layout to conform to security protocols.

The AUTOCONFIG function can be used to provide the same secure layout for Windows XP and lower.

The following is an example of a typical layout where username is the login name of the current user.

  1. Executable and Program Files

    C:\Program Files\dsp67
  2. Labbooks

    C:\Documents and Settings\username\My Documents\DADiSP
  3. Session File

    C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\DADiSP\dadisp67.ses
  4. OPL Files

    C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\DADiSP
  5. Temporary Files (Spill Files)

    C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local Settings\Temp
The specific directory layout is dependent on the running version of Windows.

The OS_AUTOCONFIG configuration parameter in DADISP.CNF also controls the directory layout. The parameter accepts the following values:

0:do not setup a conforming layout
1:setup a conforming layout under Vista and higher (default)
2:always setup a conforming layout

AUTOCONFIG internally sets OS_AUTOCONFIG to 2.
