Go to solution

What is the advantage of using the MAX configuration API to load the configuration? Lets assume you just have one configuration.

If it's some sort of a shared PC then it prevents other users from changing something about the MAX configuration that makes your program stop working.


If you put the configuration file you use into source control it allows you to track when changes to it happen and also recover it if the PC its on has a hard drive failure.

Thanks Kyle, these are the answers I suspected and I appreciate your response. In a system that has a lifespan computer change-out requirement, then doing this seems necessary unless the new computer is imaged like the old.
