Issue Details

I have a custom TestStand UI and have multiple User.ini files which I would like to select and have TestStand load at startup.  How can I automate the selection? 


To change which User.ini file is loaded by TestStand, the file Startupcfg.ini needs to be edited to reflect the location of the new User.ini file.  It is recommended this change be done in the operator interface source code before launching the TestStand Engine.

Additional Information

The StartupCfg.ini file can be found in the following directory on most Windows installations:
C:\ProgramData\National Instruments\TestStand 2019 (32-bit)\Cfg
