Re: Problem with paramters in varfile when unattented installation

Post by mwentholt »

Hello ,

I work with OpenWebstart version 1_2_1
Windows Server

I tried to get it working to "control" the location of the User cache. But my definitiion of the parameters are not correct. Openwebstart is not "take" the settings over.
Particle Example of my varfile:
# Cache dir for the Client -- Let op de DIR aanwijzing <drive>\:\\xxx\\xxx\\xxx
# Aanpassingen aan de folder via deze weg werken (nog) niet.
# LET OP. HIer moeten nog windows user gebonden parameters in.

I also tried a "fix path: Trimergo_admin was the Windows username.
deployment.user.cachedir=C\:\\Users\\Trimergo_Admin\\.trimergo\\Trimergo_Openwebstart\\cache

Could you please try to reformat your post, it looks very fragmented. You example in the first post contains just comments.

Although the question is not very clear, I think the problem here is that you try to use properties which are only defined for the file deployment.properties which is used by Oracle.

You need to use the properties available for OWS, which can be defined in the .varfile:

@ptai
The .varfile is only used in the case of unattended installation.
For any other use case the %USER_HOME%/.config/icedtea-web/deployment.properties is the correct file to modify
