The SWMXP.INI file contains the essential configuration information that controls the default behavior of XPSWMM. This file may be edited with any text editor. It can also be edited under Tools > Application Settings.
The file consists of a number of lines in the form:
BLOCK_NAME is a header for the VARIABLE & VALUE that follows it must be one of: [Main], [Config], [Display], [Settings], [Engine] [web], [STATUS], [Recent File List], [Field Precision], [Field Defaults], [Pest], or [Comments].
VARIABLE is not case-sensitive. VALUE is a string of characters relevant to the variable and is also not case-sensitive (see descriptions below). Comments may be included in the file by inserting a pound (#) character anywhere on a line. Any characters on a line following the pound are ignored.
View the swmxp.ini File Variables page for further details on available variables.
