    I have configured stationery settings I would like to push to all users that I deploy Presentation Pack to. How can I push those settings (default Stationery Location, etc)? They are not written to the registry.

    Please see below the options to specify the stationery path:

    • You can update the applet and specify an override path in the OVERRIDE_PATH constant. This constant value will take precedent. Please note, end user can change the stationey location during a session but when the applet execute the stationery path will set to the OVERRIDE_PATH value. For example:
      OVERRIDE_PATH constant is defined to “m:SharedFolderstationery”. Every time the Stationery applet execute, it will shows all stationery from the “m:SharedFolderstationery” folder. However, end user can change the stationey location from the UI (Settings – General – Stationery Location) for a session only.

      You need to run the installer, go to the Formativ Applets folder, usually C:Documents and SettingsUSER_NAMEMy DocumentsAdvansysFormativApplets. Select the applet “Stationery_Flexalock.vbf” and open with Notepad to edit the OVERRIDE_PATH constant. Note that, you then need to deploy the updated applet to all users using Novell ZENworks or other tools.

    • You can uses the applet to set the stationery loaction. Select ‘Settings – General – Stationery Location’ to set the stationery path. Stationery applet writes the settings including the stationery location into an ini file “stationery.ini”. This file is stored into each user Formativ Config directory, usually “C:Documents and SettingsUSER_NAMELocal SettingsApplication DataAdvansysFormativ1.0Config”. You will need to deploy this ini file to all users Formativ Config directory.

    Hope this helps.
