From version 4.0.4 on, Terrapin Logo supports the installation on a central Windows network server.
This page explains how to install Terrapin Logo on such a Windows network server. The information is only useful for network administrators.
C:ProgramDataTerrapinshareable, or copy the contents of this folder to a shareable location.
config.ininext to the Logo executable
Logo.exe. This file contains additional information about the location of the Logo folders.
This file contains the location of the Logo files that Logo needs to know about:
# Folder containing the contents of c:ProgramDataTerrapin SharedDataFolder = \serverfolder # Folder containing DocumentsTerrapin Logo (optional) UserDataFolder = \serverfolder # Suppress the loading of the Toolbox images (optional, from version 4.1 on) LoadToolbox = false
The Logo installer stores the Logo Toolbox files into the folder
C:ProgramDataTerrapin. When installing a license, Logo creates the license files in the same folder. To make Logo work on a client machine, this folder must be user-readable. You can either share this folder, or you copy the folder and its contents to a shareable location. The
SharedDataFolder entry in the
config.ini file contains the full path to this folder.
When Terrapin Logo launches, it creates the folder
Terrapin Logo inside the local user's
Documents folder and populates the folder with a file and a few shortcuts to the Toolbox folder. You can either leave this as is, or, if you wish Logo to use a different folder, you can set the
UserDataFolder to the folder that Terrapin Logo should use to store this data.
If you need the user's login name as part of the path name, use

From Terrapin Logo version 4.1 and up, you can suppress the loading of Toolbox images if launching Logo takes too much time. The Toolbox contains more than 400 images, and this could take some time if the Toolbox resides on a network server. The images are still available via the Toolbox shortcut that Terrapin Logo creates in its home folder.
