Roaming Profiles and SQL Prompt options

CodantiMCodantiM Posts: 245
edited November 7, 2013 8:59AM in SQL Prompt Previous Versions
We recently purchased SQL Prompt 3, and have now noticed that we loose all of our settings every time we log off our PC. Our PCs are setup with roaming profiles, which I suspect are the problem, since the options appear to be stored under the "Local Settings" directory, which is not persistent. (So it really isn't a good place to store options.)

Is there any chance that the next version of SQL Prompt will store it's settings in a more appropriate place?

(I know it is very close to the release of 3.5, but this is really annoying to all of our developers.)

    Hi there,


    For the new version you can define the storage folders for options etc by creating a registry key called "\\HKCU\Software\Red Gate\SQL Prompt 3" You can then define values called:

    "Options Folder"
    "Cache Folder"
    "Snippets Folder"

    These should all be strings set to the location where you'd like your settings stored.

    This should be available as a release candidate within the next week or two. The final release should be available a couple of weeks after that.

    Hope that helps.


    Thanks,
    Bart

  • Will those registry entries expand variables, so that something like:

    C:\Documents And Settings\%username%\Application Data\RedGate\SQLPrompt

    could be used, and would get expanded correctly for the user?

    Even better would be to have the settings first come from the Policy registry section, HKLM\Software\Policies and/or HKCU\Software\Policies, so that a GP could be deployed to control the location.

    I dunno, give 'em an inch and they take a mile. :wink:

    Unfortunately this isn't a supported feature, it's a quick hack I put in a while back to help out our testers so I'm afraid it's fairly limited. You have to specify the fully qualified path for each folder, and note that if you want them all to be somewhere other than the local profile you need to specify locations for all of them.

  • If you're not careful we will take two miles. :lol:

    Is there a procedure for making an official feature request? (Given what you have already, I suspect that expanding it would be fairly easy.)

    In any case, I am glad that the next version takes a step in the correct direction.

    Thanks!

  • OK, I upgraded to SQL Prompt 3.5 and put the registry settings in, but I get an error and SQL Prompt crashes when I open a new query windows in SMSS.

    I found that if I make this directory:

    "C:\Documents and Settings\codantim\Local Settings\Application Data\Red Gate\SQL Prompt 3"

    that it will run and create a "CompletionConfiguration.xml" file in that directory.

    Is there another registry setting that I can set to move that file so that we can custom the options and not loose them every time we logoff the PC?

    Thanks,

    Michael

    ************** JIT Debugging **************
    To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
    application or computer (machine.config) must have the
    jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
    The application must also be compiled with debugging
    enabled.

    For example:

    <configuration>
    <system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
    </configuration>

    When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
    will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
    rather than be handled by this dialog box.

    Hi Michael,


    If you set it to a directory that already exists you should be fine. It looks like there's a bug in 3.5 where it doesn't try to create the directory until tries to save the settings for the first time. We'll try to get that fixed in the next release.


    Thanks,
    Bart

  • The directory I set it to does exist, the problem is that the location for the "CompletionConfiguration.xml" file isn't getting redirected to a spot other than default, even with me setting all three of the keys you mentioned.

    The default directory does get created if I don't redirect it, so "CompletionConfiguration.xml" gets created.

    Once I redirect the main configuration files, so that the options aren't lost every time we log off, the default directory doesn't get created, so SQL Prompt fails trying to create "CompletionConfiguration.xml" every time.

    Any idea when a version would be available that can be used with roaming profiles? (It is getting really old to loose all of our settings every time we have to log off the PC.)

    OK thanks for letting me know. Unfortunately I can't really say for sure at this point because there's so much else on the agenda. As I say, we'll try to fix this if we can for the next release, but no promises.
    Thanks,

  • OK, I installed the 3.6 EA, and things are better, SQL Prompt is working again for me, and I can keep most of my custom settings across logons. (I have found that I can never 'upgrade' I have to uninstall the old version, and then install the new version to get it to work.)

    What I have found now is that SQL Prompt still creates these files:

    CompletionConfiguration.xml
    Permissions_Sql2005.xml
    SecurableClasses_Sql2005.xml
    Permissions_Sql2000.xml
    SecurableClasses_Sql2000.xml

    in this directory: "C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application Data\Red Gate\SQL Prompt 3"

    All that means is that the files are lost every time we log off, and get re-created every time we logon and start SQL Prompt. (Of course that means we can't customize the CompletionConfiguration.xml file.)

    This is a great step in the right direction, though it would be nice if there was a registry setting that could redirect all of the files out of the "local settings" directory to one place. (Maybe an option to just remove "Local Settings\" from all option/configuration file paths?)

    Thanks!
  • Please add me to the list of people who are requesting that you allow for complete user control of the locations where prompt stores all of it's information.

  • Hi, I am having the same problem with roaming profiles that you guys were having.

    Has this been solved already and is still not working?

    Thanks and regards.
