Configuration File Location

Default Location

 

Remote Desktop Manager saves its configuration in a file named RemoteDesktopManager.cfg. This file contains all of the application settings and configured data sources. All of the data source settings are encrypted for security reasons.

 

You can retrieve the installation folder of Remote Desktop Manager by clicking File - Options - Advanced. A hyperlink displays the installation folder.

 

Options - Advanced side menu

Options - Advanced side menu

 

The configuration file can be located in different folders depending on certain conditions:

 

CASE

CONFIGURATION FILE LOCATION

Installed under "Program Files" or "Program Files (x86)"

%LocalAppData%\Devolutions\RemoteDesktopManager

Application running on Terminal Server

%AppData%\Devolutions\RemoteDesktopManager. This is the roaming profile and avoids multi-user conflicts.

Other

Installation folder

 

Having the configuration file in the installation folder allows you to run multiple versions of the application side-by-side.

 

Override the Default Path

 

There are two ways to change the folder where the configuration file is stored:

 

1. Create a file named "Override.cfg" in the application folder. Remote Desktop Manager opens this file and reads the first line. It should contain the desired installation folder (without the file name). If you wish to use the current installation path, put a period in the file. Here are a few examples:

 

EXAMPLES

c:\RDM

The config file is saved in the designated folder.

.

The period is used to specify the Remote Desktop Manager installation folder.

%AppData%\Devolutions\RemoteDesktopManager

Specify the application roaming data folder.

 

2. By adding a key in the registry: CurrentUser\SOFTWARE\RemoteDesktopManager, OptionPath. Set the desired path in the key OptionPath. You must not include the file name in the value, just the path.
