Saving Setup Parameters in the Zup File

Setup parameters for running the Microsoft Dynamics NAV Development Environment are stored in a .zup file. By default, the file is named fin.zup and is located at C:\users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\. To change the name and location of the .zup file, run the development environment at a command prompt and specify the path and ID in the id parameter. For more information, see Using the Development Environment from the Command Prompt.

You can create multiple .zup files by using the id parameter. For example, you may want different users to run the development environment with different setup parameters by using the id parameter and specifying different .zup files.

The information that is stored in the .zup file includes:

  • Database name.

  • Database server name.

  • The parameters that are available in the Options window.

  • User-specified personalization of development environment windows, such as window size, window position, column order, column visibility, and column width.

When a user closes the development environment, any setup changes the user has made are saved to the .zup file.

To return to the original setup parameters, you can run the development environment at a command prompt without specifying the id parameter so that the fin.zup file is used instead of a customized <id>.zup file. If you have made changes to the fin.zup file but want to return to the original fin.zup settings, then delete the fin.zup file and run the development environment at a command prompt without specifying the id parameter. A new fin.zup file is created that has the original setup parameters.
