Issue Details

I am developing a TestStand sequence and I would like to know what are Station Global Variables and where are they located? 


Station global variables are variables specific to a computer that you can access from all steps and sequences on that computer. Any changes you make to the value of a station global variable are reflected in all other steps and sequences.
TestStand saves the station global variables in the StationGlobals.ini file in the <TestStand Application Data>\Cfg directory automatically when you close the TestStand Engine.


Additional Information

You can also save the station global variables from the Station Globals Window or by calling the Engine.CommitGlobalsToDisk method.
