Client: Changing the temporary directory

Summary

Since Fabasoft Folio Version 2013 Winter Update Rollup 1 it is possible to modify the directory of temporary files created when opening a file in Fabasoft Folio. In order to change this directory a registry key must be set.

Please consider that these changes apply per user only.

Instructions

Follow these steps to accomplish this modification:

  1. Open the registry editor.
  2. Navigate to the following registry key:
    Folio 2013 - Folio 2015: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Fabasoft\WebClient\BaseSettings\Enterprise
    Folio 2016 and above: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Fabasoft\WebClient\ConfigValues\Enterprise16  (for Folio versions after 2016, replace 16 by the version number, e.g. for Folio 2017 use 17, ...)
  3. Create a key named DocDir if it does not exist yet.
  4. Select the DocDir  key and set the default value to the desired directory.

You may also use a registry (.reg) file to create the key as well as set the default value for you. In the given example below the temporary directory is set to "C:\Temp".

Fabasoft Folio 2013-2015

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Fabasoft\WebClient\BaseSettings\Enterprise\DocDir]
"@"="C:\\Temp"

Fabasoft Folio 2016 and above

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Fabasoft\WebClient\ConfigValues\Enterprise16\DocDir]
"@"="C:\\Temp"

 

After changing the temporary directory, the Folio Client needs to be restarted.
