    SIMS Discover integrated button

    When a school has Discover installed, a 'Discover' button is integrated into the SIMS toolbar. My question is that when you click that button and Discover loads, where does it look for the information on where the Discover client is installed, what database it should connect to etc.

    After some testing, I know it's defiantly not from Discover.SIMS.Configuration.exe.config file as I would expect!

    It finds the Discover Client from a line in sims.ini, which is usually in the Windows folder (although it may only contain a a re-direct to one on the server)

    That would be the Configuration program @Rawns, your after the:
    Discover.Designer.Desktop.exe.config
