You can change a specific workspace setting without changing the other settings on a user desktop. This allows you to change a setting after you deploy InfoConnect without the risk of overwriting other settings that users have configured.
To deploy a specific setting, you’ll use the Installation Customization Tool (ICT) to create and package an Update.settings file in an MSI that you can deploy to users. When InfoConnect starts, it applies the settings in this file to the workspace.
If you want to modify a setting that you have updated in this way or change it back to the default setting, you’ll use the ICT to modify the Update.settings file in the MSI you deployed and then deploy the new version of the MSI to users.
NOTE:You can update only workspace settings that are set in theApplication.Settings file. You cannot update Information Privacy or Access file settings.
