Hi there @novaman,

 

You'll find "SEAdmin.exe" on the DVD.......browse to the "SptTools" folder.

If you only have the download file, you will need to unpack it to navigate to it.

Re: Options.xml

... and although it might be clear, but You have to copy it into the SE program folder

Re: Options.xml

I edit it in notepad, mostly because I haven't installed Gedit or Kate on work machine.

Re: Options.xml

@bnemec  I use seadmin to edit options.xml but I've never heard of these editors (gedit and kate). What do you see as their advantages over notepad or, if you know it, notepad++?

Hi,

 

 

 

as mentioned by @bshand I also see the SEadmin as the more user friendly tool than any other XML editors.

 

But to complete the list of editors: don't forget the XML Notepad from Microsoft.

This at least is a tool especially made for XML editing

Re: Options.xml

I would not advise editing the XML directly using a generic editor.  I've seen some applications crash because of missing tag elements due to accidental deletion or not understanding the XML formatting rules.

 

If you must use a generic editor, I would suggest using one that has XML syntax checking that will warn you when it is malformed.


Thanks,
Ken

Re: Options.xml

@bshand they are similar to notepad++ originate from Linux side; I haven't used notepad++ much though. They are handy tools when editing various languages as you can set up color, indenting a couple of spaces instead of tab character etc. for many file types. Much quicker than a full blown IDE for simple stuff. I fear I'm going OT but did not want to be rude and not reply.
