The MyEdit documentation says that I can install MyEdit on a flash drive. How do I do this? I don't want to mess up my current installation on my desktop. But I'd like to be able to take it out to a client with me for an install tomorrow since I'm CERTAIN I've screwed some stuff up and will need to do a few last minute program tweaks on site.
And once I've done this, do I just determine the drive letter that the system has assigned to the flash drive and then edit the clients BRCONFIG.SYS file to add an editor statement? OR is there something unique that you do to
Is that all I need to do to hook it up with a flash drive? How do I move all of my customizations from my desktop installation to the flash drive one?
Ok, I was correct. /forceportable is the command line option needed to make MyEditBR behave properly on a USB install.
You need the following setup (Manually configured):
1) Make a folder on your USB key.
2) Copy all files and folders where you have MyEditBR installed on your main machine to the folder created in Step 1. (This will typically be "c:\program files\mills enterprise\myeditbr".)
3) Copy all files and folders from your MyEditBR data directory into the folder created in Step 1. (This data folder will be found in one of two different places depending on the operating system you have. WinXP: "c:\documents and settings\(your username)\Application Data\Mills Enterprise\MyEditBR") (Please replace (your username) with the appropriate value.
You need to edit your brconfig.sys file and add the command line option /forceportable) it to the EDITOR option there as well as point it to your new USB install of MyEditBR.
Once that is done, you should be good to go.
Hopefully that helps.
