Command Line Arguments
The following command line arguments can be used when starting KioWare Lite:
Loads a KioWare Lite XML file and writes those settings to local settings. This will supercede loading from local settings unless the XML file cannot be loaded.
KioWareLite.exe -xml "http://example.com/config.xml"
Note: Not valid when combined with the -configOnly flag. To load XML using the -configOnly flag, see the batch file below. You will need to change the value of xmlPath to be the path to your XML file. The batch file will set KioWare to load in the XML file on startup, and will continue to load that XML file on startup unless the XML file changes those settings. In order for the XML file to make those changes, you must select the General Tab section when saving out the XML file from the Config Tool.
Example Silent Use Batch File:
reg ADD "HKLM\Software\KioWareLite" /v "Remote_Config_Flag" /t REG_SZ /f /d "1"
reg ADD "HKLM\Software\KioWareLite" /v "Remote_Config_URL" /t REG_SZ /f /d %xmlPath%
Tells KioWare Lite to run commands and then exit without being shown.
See batch file above for -xml.
This setting is only useful when used in multi-settings mode. It enables an instance of KioWare Lite to load settings from a different registry tree.
Note that the registry path is relative to HK_LocalMachine.
KioWareLite.exe -registry "Software\kw_settings"
