Im wondering if anyone has deployed Beyond Compare and also tried to lockdown any settings ?
Beyond Compare stores the settings in an XML file under the Users location in /Users/Username/Application Support/Beyond Compare/BCPreferences.xml
The file doesnt exist until the user starts the program so I tried to create the file if it didnt already exist for each user, after the install in a post install script -- this is what it should look like:
[ I dont know how to make the format in these post look like the script ! soemone please educate me on that ! ]
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!-- Produced by Beyond Compare 4 from Scooter Software -->
<BCPreferences Version="1" MinVersion="1"> <TBcPrefs> <CheckForUpdatesDayAmt Value="0"/> </TBcPrefs>
I'm using a loop to try to edit or create the file
## returns 0 if file exists with the value
My apologies-- i really dont know how to get the formatting correct in this post.
The file is not getting created, does anyone have a suggestion ? Thank you
