In this article we look at the new install locations for VDM using the MSI. 

 

There are 4 main install locations for VDM files.

  • AppData - contains the user's OPTIONS, VDM.lic file and their RECENT file by default.
  • ProgramData - contains the Windows Service DLLs and EXE as well as the SERVICEOPTIONS file. 
  • Program Files - contains VDM dlls, executable, service folder and report import
  • Documents - default location for VDM to store all user defined data, reports, connection profiles etc. If using an imported options file, the folder locations set in the OPTIONS file will be used.
