Report functions in Proiv 5
Posted 12 November 2002 - 02:07 PM
You need to edit the proiv.ini file on the client machine. You'll find this in the main Windows/WinNT folder.
Be sure that you have closed all PROIV clients you have running before altering this file. The client won't pick up the new setting until you reload it.
You will almost certainly have the [Settings] line in the file already, find it and just add the two other lines somewhere below it - but before the start of any other [ ... ] line.
The settings are:
You don't need the path for most windows apps - although probably it won't hurt. If you are likely to print very large reports, consider using Wordpad.exe instead as notepad has a 64K file size limit.
Don't learn from your own mistakes - it's safer and more entertaining to learn from the mistakes of others!
Just because you can, it doesn't mean you should!

I've attempted to get Wordpad working as the default for print to screen
PC - Windows 95
PRO-IV - Ver 4.0 - Rev 5.1.4
GUI Client Ver 4.1
NO change occurred - worpad not executing
Then applied same change to proiv.ini on a Version 5 application and wordpad did execute
therefore, I'm assuming this feature does not work on Ver 4.0 running on Windows/NT
If someone has got this feature running on the configuration I mention at top then please let me know ...
migration to ver5.0 is planned for later this yr but could do with this print feature now

Think some backslashes might have got swallowed there somewhere..
Include this statement in your proiv.ini
this will tell pro-iv to use NOTEPAD as your default text viewer for your report.

thanks for the advice/help above
I've tried above suggestions - wordpad, notepad, DOC, TXT, RTF etc., - path with/without slashes - still the CRT box is executing - not the desired choice
Anybody out there got this feature working on Version 4.0 ???
As mentioned earlier I have it working on another environment under 5.0

I'm pretty sure this feature was added in 4.6 (client 138), so you are wasting your time trying to get it to work with the client from 4.0....
