I've not got too much further in this area - the HOD shortcuts should be pointing to the place where the acsclient.jar file is, essentially - I think theseiAccessClient directories have no executables - they are probably created the first time someone starts the thing - maybe you can verify that on a clean install.

The place you install everything from the ZIP file can be a network file share - then the shortcuts will all point there, I'd think, and we could maybe distribute those shortcuts to everyone.

I think the GettingStarted.html has more about this - as I say, I've stopped with just getting my own setup going - my boss will need justification, first of all, for people to go to this client in the first place, and then a simple way to distribute it.

Cheers

Vern,

I'd like to take this thread one step further.

We have many shared PCs.
Current Client Access shortcuts are created and stored in public desktop, so each user will see and use the same shortcut.

Is this same philosophy possible with the HOD shortcuts?

I noticed within Edit/Preferences/Local settings, all the paths are pointed to a specific user.

Configuration Root
Path: C:\Users\psteinmetz\Documents\IBM\iAccessClient
Logs Directory
Path: C:\Users\psteinmetz\Documents\IBM\iAccessClient\Logs
Etc

Just another couple bits -

YOU CAN SCROLL WITH THE MOUSE WHEEL! IN PDM AND OTHER MULTI_PAGE LISTS!

Sorry for shouting - I think that is SO cool!

About installing on multiple machines - I'm not sure the best ways to do this - I think that once you have the HOD and BCHX files the way you want, it can be done by copying them. This would include the tab settings, I believe.

Toolbar and keyboard files and all can maybe be on a central server or copied to individuals.

File associations? Different story - different on different platforms, I bet.

But I might easily be completely missing something!

Enough - time to head home for real!

Got it! Including the shortcut.

The shortcut has:

Target:

C:\IBMiAccessClientSolutions\Start_Programs\Windows_x86-64\acslaunch_w
in-64.exe
StrTabbedSessions.bchx

Start in:

C:\IBMiAccessClientSolutions\Dilgard\IBM\iAccessClient\Emulator

Thanks.

A snippet from multiple sessions help topic:​

​To save your entire active session layout, select *File > Save As
Multiple
Sessions...* from any active emulator session to create a new
multiple sessions file. This action will save all windows, all Tab
Group contents (including order), window sizes, window locations,
and session IDs. A
saved
multiple sessions file may be edited through the Create or Modify
Multiple
Sessions File editor.
Which creates a .BCHX file containing a description of the five
sessions I have configured to run as tabs in the same window. How do
I use that file to automatically start all those sessions from the command line?
Here's the contents of my .BCHX file:

[Profile]
ID=BCHX
Version=2
[Batch]
Run1=bchx5250
C:\Users\jcallahan\Documents\IBM\iAccessClient\Emulator\ificmbl38e.ho
d -s=D
-w=1 -t=3 -p=328,91 -d=1263,898
Run2=bchx5250
C:\Users\jcallahan\Documents\IBM\iAccessClient\Emulator\ificmbl38d.ho
d -s=C
-w=1 -t=2 -p=328,91 -d=1263,898
Run3=bchx5250

d -s=B
-w=1 -t=1 -p=328,91 -d=1263,898
Run4=bchx5250

d -s=E
-w=1 -t=4 -p=328,91 -d=1263,898
Run5=bchx5250
C:\Users\jcallahan\Documents\IBM\iAccessClient\Emulator\ificmbl38a.ho
d -s=A
-w=1 -t=0 -p=328,91 -d=1263,898


What I'd really like is for the five sessions to start together when
I click a desktop icon, much like Client Access for Windows did when
a multiple session batch was setup.

Right now, I start those configured 5250 sessions I need for steps:

start IBMi Client Access Solutions by clicking on a desktop icon,
then click on Session Manager link, then Shift Select all the
sessions I want to start, then click the Start Button

The documentation doesn't give an example that explains how to do so-
or if it does, it does so in a manner that isn't sufficiently clear
for me to understand (and I've been working with IBM midrange
documentation since 1980).

No way I can roll this out to end users if the sessions won't start
in one click.
