The other possibility is to have one login to be used for   the station. I just don't quite understand yet why when a new user opens the   .vxe software it sets up to the default settings even though I saved the   settings I need into it. I'm guessing that if the Windows printer default is   in portrait the VEE software's .vxe overrides the settings it was set to and   the print magnification goes to the default of 75% because it knows it won't   fit on the page in portrait.</FONT></P>  <P><FONT size=2>-----Original Message-----</FONT> <BR><FONT size=2>From:   Andersen Dave-P26278 [<A   href="mailto:Dave.Andersen@gd-decisionsystems.com">mailto:Dave.Andersen@gd-decisionsystems.com</A>]</FONT>   <BR><FONT size=2>Sent: Thursday, November 15, 2001 9:14 AM</FONT> <BR><FONT   size=2>To: Shaw, Edward</FONT> <BR><FONT size=2>Subject: RE: vrf Windows 98 to   Windows NT 2000 </FONT></P><BR>  <P><FONT size=2>Under Win2k, everyone has their own "personal settings".    In fact, under Vee 6, everyone has their own vee settings as well unless you   save the vee settings into the file itself as you have done.  Changing   the setting from the Admin account may do what you want.</FONT></P>  <P><FONT size=2>-----Original Message-----</FONT> <BR><FONT size=2>From: Shaw,   Edward [<A   href="mailto:eshaw@comtechefdata.com">mailto:eshaw@comtechefdata.com</A>]</FONT>   <BR><FONT size=2>Sent: Wednesday, November 14, 2001 2:32 PM</FONT> <BR><FONT   size=2>To: vrf@lvld.agilent.com</FONT> <BR><FONT size=2>Subject: vrf Windows   98 to Windows NT 2000 </FONT></P><BR><BR>  <P><FONT size=2>My company's IT department and I just completed a changeover   from Windows 98 to Windows NT 2000 Professional onto a test station with a new   computer as well. We are running Novell Client for Windows 2000. I logged in   using my username and I installed Vee Pro 6.01 and copied the backed up VEE   test program previously running on Win98 with Vee Pro 6.01. I reconfigured all   the instruments and the station ran OK. Then I created a runtime version   selecting the Save colors and fonts with program option and Save I/O   configuration with program option.</FONT></P>  <P><FONT size=2>I have run into a problem which I haven't solved yet. I have   the Print Magnification In the Default preferences print setting set to 100%   to correctly print out the station's data sheets. I also use the Print Setup   which needs to be set to Landscape Orientation for the data sheets to printout   correctly. The problem is after I have logged out and a station operator logs   in and runs the station software, these settings go back to the Windows   defaults of 75% Print magnification and Portrait Orientation. I then adjust   the settings to correctly print the data sheets and save it. It works until a   new user logs in and the settings go back to the default. </FONT></P>  <P><FONT size=2>I am not very familiar with Windows 2000.
