Unfortunately, I had the permissions set incorrectly on this forum topic so folks couldn't post. I'm posting the following response to a question sent to me via email, that had been intended for this forum:
DBrowser has a means to set the database directory, but I've realised I didn't document it anywhere outside of the software itself! I followed a standard convention for obtaining the docs on the command-line switches.
To get the command-line switch docs for DBrowser, type:
This also works for Rel.jar. E.g.:
To tell DBrowser to use a database in a particular directory, type (for example):
Code: Select all
java -jar DBrowser.jar -fc:\RelData\MyFirstDatabase
To tell DBrowser not to use any database by default, type:
All the provided .jar files must reside in the same directory, along with the Scripts subdirectory and its contents in order for the Backup button to work. The assumption is that this will be the installation directory. By using the '-f' option described above, you can set the default database to be in any directory you like.
You can, of course, edit the DBrowser.bat (or Rel.bat, as appropriate) file to include the above switches.
