Alias files are stored on disk as XML files by default. If you want the alias files to be in INI format rather than in XML, set the ALIAS_FILE_IS_XML environment variable to FALSE.

Note: Once the alias file is in XML format, setting this variable to FALSE won't revert it.

If you want to use this variable, you must set it in the environment when you are executing acurcl -alias (or acurcl with the graphical control panel on Windows), because AcuConnect reads no configuration files in this mode.

See your operating system documentation for how to set environment variables.
