Operating error prevention

PhraseExpress can be secured against operating errors by disabling menu options in the user interface:

RestrictionConfiguration

Prevent access to program settings

  • Launch the PhraseExpress client with the command-line parameter -nosettings.
  • Set a write-protect flag on the PhraseExpress client's configuration file "config.xml".
  • In the PhraseExpress client configuration file "config.xml", look for the entry <ConfigDisabled> and make sure, that it is followed by a 1 (and not a 0).
  • If using the SQL Server, uncheck the column labeled "C" in the tab "Monitor" of the PhraseExpress Client Manager for the desired users.

Prevent editing phrases

  • Launch the PhraseExpress client with the command-line parameter -noedit
  • Set a write-protect flag on the phrase file(s).
  • If using a SQL Server, uncheck the column labeled "W" in the tab "Monitor" of the PhraseExpress Client Manager for the desired users.

The restricted user interface increases ease-of-use and minimizes training and technical support by IT staff.
