Preset ArticyServer address

Fri 24. Apr 2015, 09:00

Hi there,

we're in the process off rolling out the articy Client to our users via the Microsoft Configuration Center.
Currently we provide Perforce Server Details via the ClientSettings.xml. Is there a way to also preset the
address of the articy Server so that the form field is prefilled before the first Connection?

I understand that ClientSettings.xml won't help as it is pulled from the Server after connecting. Maybe an XML
file beside the installer or a registry entry to be set could help?

Best regards,

Hi Jan

you can archive this in two ways:

Either add
Code: Select all
-host <name of your articy:server host>

to the desktop link

or place the following XML file named "UserSettings.xml" in "%appdata%\nevigo\articy". You will have to modify it according to your Address & Port settings. Using the settings below, the server is automatically connected upon start and waits for user & password data.

Code: Select all
<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8' standalone='yes' ?>
<Settings Version="1">
  <ServerList UseAutoLogin="True">
    <Server Address="" Port="16707" AutoLoginPassword="" UseAutoLogin="False">

This file is managed from the login screens an may get additional information like the user or the (encrypted) password of the user.
Just take a look at your own version.
