The second thing to do after starting MLP for the first time is set the path to the global configuration file.

This is done on the Options form which is opened from the Options item on the main tool bar.

For most users the global config file will be located on their server so that MLP has the same settings for all users.

The global config file can be overridden by placing a copy in the ...\Drawings\MLPRO\Config subdirectory and making changes as required. MLP will use the config file in the MLPRO\Config sub-directory below the drawings unless it is not present or has been renamed to something other than Config.xls.

The Options form can also be used to enter your Company ID. If custom programming has been included for your company, the Company ID will activate it.
