Modification of settings.ini
The settings of the FLEET application are stored in settings.ini. Some of the settings are initial configuration and some are parameters for execution.
When the FLEET is executed for the first time, the first run wizard is executed. This reads the initial configuration from settings.ini, and asks the user for settings preferred by him. These settings are then saved into file settings.dat. Since there is this dat file present, the first run wizard is not executed, and the application reads only the parameters for execution are read.
However, when the FLEET is executed for the first time using the InitApi function, the first run wizard is not executed, as well the configuration parameters are not read from from settings.ini. There are default settings used instead. For this scenario it is necessary either to create settings.dat manually, or to set the parameters with the ChangeApplicationOptions function. The parameters for execution are read from the settings.ini file always.
In the list bellow are mentioned some of the settings. Those in blue color are parameters for execution and those in green are for initial configuration.
