Set your application configuration E-mail this topicE-mail this topic Print this topicPrint this topic

By default, ArcGIS Explorer starts up with the default application configuration that includes all the built-in functionality and content from ESRI. You can specify a different application configuration either from within ArcGIS Explorer, or by specifying the application configuration to use as a command line argument.

Setting your application configuration in ArcGIS Explorer

To set your application configuration, click the Set Application Configuration button on the application menu.

In the Application Configuration dialog:

  1. Click the Use the application configuration located at option.
  2. Type the URL or path or browse to the application configuration file (.ncfg).
  3. Click Update.

When you change your application configuration you’ll be prompted to restart ArcGIS Explorer. The new application configuration won’t be used until you restart the application.

Using a command line argument to set your application configuration

You can specify the application configuration to use by specifying the /AppConfig command line argument. For example, the following command will start ArcGIS Explorer with the application configuration located at \\myserver\DOTApplication\DOTApplication.ncfg:

E3.exe /AppConfig \\myserver\DOTApplication\DOTApplication.ncfg

You can use the command line argument to create desktop shortcuts that start ArcGIS Explorer using a specific application configuration.
