    I’m not sure if this is the fight forum for this, gut here goes.

    Is there anyway to centrally configure the options in the Advansys Formativ Control Panel. Ideally we would like to be able to configure these settings from within C1 or the Advansys Admin tools. The main one I am looking at is the Formativ Portals settings. We are just implementing the Formativ Portals 2.0 solution with Advansys 2 and would like the Portals applet to start automatically when they click on Formativ Portals in GW.

    Thanks,

    Stuart

    Stuart,

    Unfortunately, none of the Control Panel settings are configurable via C1/eDirectory.

    In terms of the portals, you would have to push out some registry settings to specify the name of the portal folder, and the name of the applet to be run when the folder is clicked.

    The settings you are interested in are:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareAdvansys Corporationformativ1.0Settings

    Portal Folder Enabled = 1
    Portal Folder Name = “The name”
    Portal Folder Default = “Binary data”

    The value in ‘Portal Folder Default’ is a specially coded binary format. You will nee to manually select an applet via the control panel, then check the registry to obtain the actual data you need to write into the registy.

    You can also write these values on install using the /i- switch and a config file. See the installation topic for details.

    I hope this helps.

    I have had a look at the installation guide and have not been able to find any way to specify the applet to run when the user clicks on Formativ Portals in GW. It seems the settings in the config file only specify default folders and not a specific applet.

    Can you please tell me how I can specify a particular applet to be used by each user without having to visit each PC.

    Thanks,

    Stuart

    Sorry – my last post was a little misleading. You can specify all the portal folder options except the Portal Folder Default value via a config file.

    Unfortunately you need to push out the directory entry via Zen or similar (see the post from the 21st of November above for details of the ‘Portal Folder Default’ key). The value in ‘Portal Folder Default’ is a specially coded binary format. You need to manually select an applet via the control panel, then check the registry to obtain the actual data you need to write into the registy

    The ability to set this value via the installer was omitted originally due to security concerns. We are reviewing this decision, but at this time pushing out the registry key is currently the only way to acheive your objective.

    Regards,
