Because the path may be different depending on the location.
To create a shortcut, you can use the Send to Desktop (Create Shortcut) option.

If this parameter is not entered, a connection with implicit properties is created but in this case it is necessary to enter the parameters: name_connection, IP_DNS, user and password. If this parameter is used and connection found out in the .dat file and if there are some parameters entered, name_connection, IP_DNS, user and password are used instead of the values in the .dat file.
  • -file_connections
    Specifies the name of the .dat file, if it is not specified, it is called RACc_connections.dat if it does not exist, the application will not continue
  • -index_record

You will find the index when starting the application without the parameters at the end of the list in the "ID" column.

  • c:\RAC Client\RACclient.exe -not_main_view -path_data"" -index_record"1"

    In this case all the information for building the connection will be used
    from the Data\RACc_connections.dat file that is in the application directory.
  • c:\RAC Client\RACclient.exe -not_main_view -path_data"c:\RAC Client\Data" -file_connections"connections.dat" -index_record"1"

    In this case all the information for building the connection will be used
    from the connections.dat file that is in the directory c:\RAC Client\\Data.
  • c:\RAC Client\RACclient.exe -not_main_view -path_data"c:\RAC Client\Data" -file_connections"connections.dat" -index_record"1" -name_connection"Test" -IP_DNS"localhost" -user"test" -password"test"

    In this case the entered information for building the connection will be used and the other information
    from the connections.dat file hat is in the directory c:\RAC Client\Data.
  • c:\RAC Client\RACclient.exe -not_main_view -name_connection"Test" -IP_DNS"localhost" -user"test" -password"test"

    In this case the entered information for building the connection will be used and the other information will be set implicitly. If there is anything set by the user,
    these will be lost when the connection is closed.
    Only some common properties will be saved to .ini (window size, column width, sorting etc.).
