Issue Details

I would like to deploy my step list configurations along with my TestStand deployment. Where are these configurations stored so that I can copy the file(s) over to my target machine?

Solution

Step list configurations created in the Sequence Editor are stored in a file called layout_current.bin.  Step list configurations created in a User Interface are stored in a file called UserInterface.xml.  Both of these files can be found in the TestStand Local Application Data directory:

Windows 10/8/7/Vista
C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Local\National Instruments\TestStand <version> (<bitness>-bit)

Windows XP
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application Data\National Instruments\TestStand <version> (<bitness>-bit)

Note: This folder may be hidden by default.  Modify the folder options on your system to display hidden folders and directories to find the TestStand Local Application Data directory. You can browse there directly by using the Windows environment variable %teststandappdata% in the adress in Explorer.

Include either file in your TestStand deployment to move the configurations to your target machine.
