7.9. Launching Virtuoso as a different user

Background

Sometimes, it is helpful to launch Virtuoso as a different user.  For example, when setting up a new user, you may wish to provision the palettes that they are subscribed to (also see Create a Palette, Template Check Box for how to determine the default set of palettes that new users will be automatically subscribed to).

Procedure

Launch Virtuoso with the /u=<username> command line switch.  For example:

virtuoso.exe /u=john

 

Note: You must type in the exact Windows user name of the user.  If you mis-type, Virtuoso will happily create a configuration file for whatever username you specify.
