Changing the default location of the ATAS Platform folder

Modified on Mon, 06 May 2024 at 04:01 PM

All logs of actions within the platform, as well as templates with user-configured chart settings, are automatically stored in the ATAS platform folder.

* By default, this directory is located in Documents/ATAS.

Sometimes you may need to change the location of this folder. This may be necessary  if you need to create a portable version (save on a flash memory stick).

* The folder must be changed after the platform has been shut down. The new default folder is created during the login into the ATAS platform.

To do this:

1. Open the OFT.Platform.dll.config file in the folder where the program is installed.

*Default file path: C:\Program Files (x86)\ATAS Platform/OFT.Platform.dll.config

This is an XML file, but you can open it with Notepad.

2. Further, find the text highlighted below in this document:

3. Between the quotes after the equal sign, you need to enter the path to the folder where the settings will be saved.
This can be a full path, for example, C:\ATASFolder .

Alternatively, it can be a relative path, for example,

“ATASFolder” -  In this case, the ATASFolder directory, where all the information will be stored, will be created in the folder with the installed program. This method is suitable for the Portable version (if, for example, ATAS needs to be saved to a memory stick).

You can also use the following reserved directory names: MyDocuments, Desktop, UserProfile, ProgramFiles, and ApplicationData.

For example, 

%Desktop%\%AppName% - the ATAS folder will be created on the desktop, where all the information will be placed;

%ProgramFiles%\%AppName% - a folder in the Program Files directory will be created, etc.

Important! You should make changes to the file when the platform is turned off. If the file doesn't save with the new settings, save it to a different location, and then copy and replace it in the ATAS folder.
