Is FTN95 designed so that it can be installed on a network such that code could be complied using any computer connected to the network and the source code located on a network drive.

In this case I am talking about doing compiling and linking on the command line and not in a .NET environment.

Thank you.

Michael

A number of universities have deployed FTN95 in this way.
You will need to sort out where to hold configuration files such as plato.ini and sdbg.ini. It is easier if FTN95 is not configured thus avoiding the use of ftn95.cfg.

If you experience any problems then let me know on this thread.

Paul,

Your answer poses the question as to how to configure FTN95 ?
I am noticing problems on Windows 7 with locating sdbg.ini and plato.ini.
Is there an option to control this ?

John

The easiest way to configure FTN95 is to type

FTN95 /config

on the command line. The result is FTN95.cfg and this can be placed "next" to the compiler for global effect or in the local project folder for local effect. "next" may mean different things depending on your operating system. On my 64 bit Windows 7 it ends up in C:\Users\Paul\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Silverfrost\FTN95.

By default FTN95 is not configured and this state is recommended if you are using Plato or Visual Studio or if you are deploying on a network.

The Plato ini file is in fact plato3.ini. This is produced automatically by Plato and holds the user options etc. Some information is held in the registry. By default the Plato ini file is also placed "next" to Plato.exe but there is also an option for this file to contain only the full path for a preferred location. This can be useful in a network environment.
