jBASE Serial Port Service can now be started / stopped from within the Services Control Panel. It is initially installed as a manual service and can be set to Automatic if you want it started when Windows is rebooted.
When users logon, their environment will contain all system-wide environment variables that are set on the local system. In order to run jBASE after logging on, the logon process must execute the file “remote.cmd” . This file is setup in the following manner: The logon procedure will first look for a local path within the user specification, containing the location of the “remote.cmd” file (See profile tab of user properties specification). If, present, then this file is executed, setting up the local jBASE environment for the user. If this entry is not present, then a search will be made in “C:\users\(username folder)\remote.cmd”, failing that within “C:\users\default\remote.cmd”. If the “remote.cmd” does not exist in any of these locations, then the user will still be allowed to logon, but the jBASE user environment will be set up per system-wide environment variables and unpredictable results may occur.
