Configuring the automatic modification of data files
Overview
The automatic modification of data files is used to update the description of data files found on the user computers.
Note: From version 19, HFSQL is the new name of HyperFileSQL.
Configuring the automatic data modification with the wizard
To configure the automatic data modification with the wizard:
  1. Select the application (".EXE" file) for which the automatic modification of the data files must be performed.
  2. To perform the automatic modification of data files:
    • in HFSQL Classic format, check "Manage the automatic data modification".
    • in Hyper File 5.5 format or to migrate the data files from Hyper File 5.5 to HyperFileSQL Classic, check "Manage the existence of files in Hyper File 5.5 format".
  3. Click the "Advanced" button.
  4. Select the analysis in WINDEV format (".WDD" file) associated with the application.
    If the specified analysis is password protected at run time, enter this password.
  5. For each analysis file, specify (if necessary):
    • the file password (if it exists) in the analysis in WINDEV format.
      Note: To modify this password, check "Modify the password" and type the new password twice.
    • if the application is using a migrated WINDEV 5.5 analysis:
      • the source analysis in Hyper File 5.5 format (".WDA" file).
      • the name of the file in the analysis in WINDEV 5.5 format.
      • the file password (if it exists) in the analysis in WINDEV 5.5 format.
Note: This information (except for the passwords) is automatically displayed.
Updating an application with automatic modification of data files
When installing an update with automatic modification of the data files, the user will be able to configure the automatic modification by clicking the "Advanced" button. This button is found on the first plane of setup program. The following window is displayed:
This window is used to:
  • create a report file for the operations performed by the automatic data modification. If a problem occurs, this file can be given to the application manager.
    By default, this file is named "LOGMODAUTO.TXT" and it is created in the setup directory of the application.
  • list the data files in HyperFileSQL format onto which the automatic modification will be performed. You will have the ability to add to this list:
    • additional data files.
    • additional directories containing data files.
  • specify additional directories containing data files in Hyper File 5.5 format that are not automatically found during the update.
Notes:
  • During the update, the data files automatically found are:
    • the files found in the setup directory of the application.
    • the files listed in the ".REP" file. See the help about the management of .REP for more details.
  • To prevent the user from accessing the options used to configure the automatic modification, the setup editor WDINST allows you to make the "Advanced" button invisible in the setup program.
