Admin Settings

Admin settings are additional application settings which cannot be configured by the application directly.

Admin settings can be stored in one of three locations. The locations are listed below in load order. If a property is found in a parent location, it will override subsequent values.

Location
Order
Description
%ProgramData%\LogViewPlus\ machinesettings.ini
1
The machine configuration applies to all users on the machine. Admin privileges may be required.
[Install Directory]
LogViewPlus.exe.config
2
This file must be edited by an administrator directly. Values may be overridden on reinstall or repair.
%AppData%\LogViewPlus\ usersettings.ini
3
The user configuration applies only to a single user.

Admin settings can be applied by editing the target file directly. However, the recommended approach is to use the addsetting / removesetting Admin Actions. Note that admin actions commands cannot edit the installation configuration at LogViewPlus.exe.config.

The following admin settings are available.
