Optional Customization To J Folder Names
Using a release-independent installation folder
The default folder-name (j805 or j64-805) changes from release to release. If you want to use a name that doesn't change, you can either:
- make a symbolic link from the name of your choice to ~install, or
- rename the J folder from ~install to whatever you want, for example C:\J'.
In either case, make appropriate changes to shortcuts that point to ~install.
Customizing the J folders: user and temp
The user folder, which we will refer to here as ~user, is by default set to HOME/j805-user which is often a user directory such as C:/Users/username/j805-user. By default user and temp files are created in ~user, which means you have to migrate your files to new releases.
To tie ~user to a specific directory, copy the file ~install/bin/profilex_template.ijs to ~install/bin/profilex.ijs (which should not exist), and then use a text editor to change the line:
according to the suggestions you see in the file.
You can also change the temp folder, by default ~user/temp, in the same place.
