Running Startup with Command Line Parameters


The 'xini' parameter

You can launch Startup with the 'xini' command line parameter:

PATH\xstartup.exe -xini <IniFilePath>

where <IniFilePath> specifies a full path to a specific ini-file and PATH indicates your XConnectPro home directory.

This feature allows you to run several Startup sessions each with its own ini-file (i.e. settings).

In order to do so, you can create a new Startup shortcut (e.g., in the XConnectPro Programs' folder) and fill in the Target field in Properties of it with the command. For example, the Target field in Properties of the Startup shortcut might contain the following line:

"PATH\xstartup.exe" -xini myxwp1.ini

By default, the field contains a call of Startup with no arguments, and the xwp.ini file will be used in this case.

To create your specific ini-file, you can copy the xwp.ini file and then change required parameters with the Startup utility by starting it with the command line parameter.


The 'lxdn' parameter

The "-lxdn [<DisplayNumber>]" command line parameter is used to set up the "$(DISPLAYNUMBER)" macros (for the DISPLAY session environment variable if a remote daemon supports it). This provides correct X11-forwarding (if set).

The "-lxdn" option means looking up running XServer (i.e., Startup understands the local XServer's "DynamicDisplayNumber" mode and correctly looks up running XServer). In this case, XServer must already have been started.


The 'mout' parameter

The "-mout [<outputfile>]" command line option is used to provide a "readable" text-tracing to the "outputfile" log-file for your session.


The 'log' parameter

The "-log <LogLevel>" option is used to set up the level of tracing (0..7).
