Link To Your Data


VMS installs in a folder called "Program Data"  (The full path looks like "C:\ProgramData\VMSPro").


The Program Data folder is not viewable in Vista by default.  You will need to drop the "Tools-Folder Options-View" menu of Windows Explorer, and check the "Show Hidden Folders and Files" box.  This will allow you to share the VMS directory and data file with other computers on your network.  When sharing the folder you'll need to allow full permissions.


The scope of Windows sharing, particularly in Vista, will not be covered here.  The structure and permissions matrix of any network can be very different and is beyond the scope of this manual.  A fundamental understanding of the Windows directory structure, sharing and permissions are necessary to invoke these functions.
