KB#00396-Using the -a and -n Visual PRO/5 command line parameters to retain user preferences

Title:

Using the -a and -n Visual PRO/5 command line parameters to retain user preferences

Description:

To configure Visual PRO/5 so that each user can have their own font, size and color mappings: 

By default, all instances of Visual PRO/5 will use the same entry in the pro5.ini file. You can have each user have custom settings by using the -a and -n command line parameters for their icons. These parameters stand for application and name, but are really only used to create and/or use a particular entry in the pro5.ini file. So, as an example, you could have something like: 

Machine 1: 
1st P5 command line: vpro5.exe -tT0 -nmachine1 -aaccountingsystem 
2nd P5 command line: vpro5.exe -tT1 -nmachine1 -asecondapp 

Machine2: 
1st P5 command line: vpro5.exe -tT0 -nmachine2 -aaccountingsystem 
2nd P5 command line: vpro5.exe -tT1 -nmachine2 -asecondapp 

This is just an example, but it demonstrates how you can use the -a and -n parameters to force a unique entry in the pro5.ini file. That way, every user can have different color/font/size settings.
