in app data) (or if there's a notepro.ini under the app data folder area on
Backup first, prior to making changes!
But, to get Ntab to use an ini under the Ntab app/program folder: 1. cannot
have an Ntab ini (notepro.ini) under the app data HD folder area when Ntab
starts. 2. To do this, (AFAIK) Notetab must find notepro.ini "only"
underneath the USB HD's Notetab program folder when your USB Notetab starts.
This means the notepro ini under app data (AFAIK) on main HD must be
Notetab (AFAIK) does not (any longer*) support two different Notetab
installations on the same computer without the overwriting of some files
(clip librarys etc.) taking place under the app data area.
* I said any longer because a long time ago notetab did not even use the app
data area. Back then all data and config was under the Ntab app folder. Was
EZ to have two or three Notetab installs -- just name the program folders
But then MS Windows changed -- into "cannot write to ini" *except* if it's
in app data area. *unless* have administrator priveleges then can write to
ini under the program folder.
Correspondingly, at that time, Ntab's "default" ini location changed to the
app data area.
I wonder if on your O.S. you need admin privelege to write to ini on USB
That's "roughly" about the extent of what I know.

group due to it has over 1500 members whereas this group has only near
I've not actually used Ntab from USB.
Hopefully, from 1500 plus members, someone has used from USB and can
share from that perspective.

The name ... specified in the Target box is not valid. Make sure the path and
filename are correct.
It seems that those switches are not allowed between the quotation marks.
