Change the connections folder path of ADS

by Nov 3, 2019


on windows OS, the connections folder path of Aqua Data Studio is in : C:\Users\login\.datastudio\connections

Is it possible to parameter (change the defaut path) of this folder ?

Hi Christophe,

You can set the location of the .datastudio directory inside the ..\datastudio\datastudio.ini file by adding the following parameter:

vmarg.5=-Duser.home=C:\Users\Tom\NewDirectory below the vmarg.4=… parameter

where C:\Users\Tom\NewDirectory is the new directory location.

Before making this change, you will want to shutdown Aqua Data Studio to save your configurations, create those directories and copy your
current .datastudio directory over to the new directory location. Do not delete your old .datastudio directory until you know all is working
from the new location.

Hope that helps,

Thank you very much Thomas, it’s works fine !

I just deactivate the licence before modify the path of the user home directory, and reactivate after modify the path.

I need this trick because all my tools are on USB Key (also Aqua Data).

Now I use Aqua Data with the same configuration on my PC and my laptop.

Many thanks !
