Return to Introduction  Previous page  Next page

TN3270 Plus can be installed on a PC and accessed by multiple windows users. In this environment, each user can have their own personal set of TN3270 Plus configuration files or the TN3270 Plus configuration files can be shared by all users. By default each user has their own set of configuration files.

Personal Configuration and Session Settings

With the default installation, the TN3270 Plus configuration files are located in the following directory:

Windows Operating System

Default Configuration Files Folder Path


C:\Users\user_id\AppData\Roaming\SDI\TN3270 Plus\

2003/ XP/2000

C:\Program Files\SDI\TN3270 Plus\

Shared Configuration and Session Settings

If you want multiple users on the same PC to share the same TN3270 Plus configuration files you need to change the configuration file location to a folder that is shared by all users. You can do this by logging onto each user and changing the Configuration Files Folder (Setup, Preferences, Configuration Files Folder) to the shared folder or you can delete the Configuration Files Folder and specify the shared folder in the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\SDI\TN3270 Plus\Configuration\DataPath\  (64-bit Windows)HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\SDI\TN3270 Plus\Configuration\DataPath\ (32-bit Windows)
