Manage your 747IPC VMREAD.CFG file

This program tries to take most of the hassle out of the management of your 747IPC VMREAD.CFG key file. You get a simple selection list of programs, you pick what you need, and the file comes out automatically minimized to what you really need. No more typos, no more duplicates.

In case more data becomes available, you should download a new release of this installer program, install it, and run it. Select what you want, and hit "Save". Done!

Maintaining configuration files

Only if you write PS1 add-on software, or if you build your very specific setup, you need to read this section.

The configuration files for the VMREAD Wizard (in the \etc folder) can be divided into two:

  1. The master VMREAD.CFG file. This is one single large file that contains all known 747IPC keys, whether they are used by anything or not. This file is maintained by Pierre (see the file for his address) and additions should be sent to him.
  2. The various *.keys files. They belong to the add-on programs and list all keys that each program needs to work. These files are usually maintained by the authors of the programs, their names and addresses are inside the respective files.
If anybody has an update of any file, or even a new *.keys file, just e-mail them to the maintainer or to myself (Jeroen). The file will appear in the next release of the VMREAD Wizard, usually within a day or two.

Local config file

If you need keys for some item that you built yourself, or if you encounter an add-on whose .keys file is out of date, consider to create your own etc\local.keys file instead of editing existing files. A new release of the Wizard will overwrite files that it thinks it knows, but it will not touch files it does not know. So your 'local' additions will be preserved through upgrades, and they cannot ever conflict with newer add-on files.
