    Location of the configuration file

    Depending on the version of IntuiFace Player installed (64 or 32 bits) the IntuiFace configuration file can be found under the following locations:

    • 64-bits Player: C:\Program Files\IntuiLab\IntuiFace\Player\IntuiFacePlayerApp.exe.config
    • 32-bits Player: C:\Program Files (x86)\IntuiLab\IntuiFace\Player\IntuiFacePlayerApp.exe.config

    WARNING: corrupting the configuration file may result in a non-functional IntuiFace Player. Edit the configuration file at your own risk.

    • Copy the IntuiFacePlayerApp.exe.config file on a different location.
    • Using "Save as", create a new version of the configuration file and name it local.config.
    • Add the local.config file you have just created in the following folder: C:\ProgramData\IntuiLab\IntuiFace\Player.
    • Open the local.config file it in a text editor to edit its content.

    IMPORTANT NOTE:

    Configuring the way IntuiFace Player deals with crashes

    Before IntuiFace Player v6.0.5

    To avoid displaying a crash report window generated by a Player for Windows, the tag <IntuiFacePlayerConfiguration CrashWindowType="Default"> must be modified into <IntuiFacePlayerConfiguration CrashWindowType="Default" SilentCrashReport="true">.

    Starting with IntuiFace Player v6.0.5

    Starting with IntuiFace Player v6.0.5 we de-activated the crash report window by default.

    If you want to re-activate the display of the crash report window, the tag <IntuiFacePlayerConfiguration CrashWindowType="Default"> must be modified into <IntuiFacePlayerConfiguration CrashWindowType="Default" SilentCrashReport="false">.
