When you launch the Cisco Information Server (CIS) Studio client, it displays the username, domain, server, and port information that was used for the last successful login. It also remembers the objects that were open during the last successful login. This document explains the steps in order to reset the CIS Studio state to default as if it were a new Studio.
Where does the Studio store the information it displays in the log in dialog that comes up when you launch the Studio?
How can the Studio be reset to default values?
Use the Reset to Defaults button in the Studio options window (use top-level menu File->Options?). This removes the Studio saved setting files and creates new default ones.
Setting information is stored under your Windows home directory. For example:
You can also set to defaults by deleting these files manually when Studio is not running. If you would like all default settings for Studio, it is safe to delete the entire .compositesw directory and all of its contents. Studio will regenerate the directory with default settings the next time it starts.
For an entire installation of Studio, the default settings for these login credentials are stored in:
This file is read-only and should be read one time by Studio on the first time it runs in order to to establish default settings. If you change this file, it has the effect of changing every user?s initial defaults the first time they run Studio. Cisco does not recommend editing this file, but if you have to use a username other than admin for initial defaults, for example, try to edit it here.
Follow these steps:
- On your Windows client machine, open a DOS prompt and cd to the C:\Users\<loginid> folder. For example:cd C:\Users\survenk2
- In this folder is a .compositesw folder. Close all studio windows and rename this folder as: move.compositesw.compositesw_backup
- Open a studio and you see the default values like a new studio.
