StarTeam SDK Path
The root path of the SDK is determined by the path in the
setup.ini file whose content looks like the following:
On a 32-bit system
[StarTeam SDK Folders]
On a 64-bit system
[StarTeam SDK Folders] //for 32-bit SDK
Programs=C:\Program Files (x86)\Borland
Java=C:\Program Files (x86)\Borland\Java
[StarTeam 64-SDK Folder] //for 64-bit SDK
setup.ini file can be found under the All Users and current User profiles directories, for example on WinXP:
%ALLUSERSPROFILE%\Application Data\Borland\StarTeam, and
Note: You can manually change the path for the SDK from these two copies of
setup.ini. However, it's not recommended to do so
since it may cause failure in applications that depend on previous installation of SDKs.
