BitMeter supports the use of User Profiles, allowing different sets
of configuration options to be used by different users, and also allowing separate upload/download
histories to be maintained.
By default BitMeter will store its configuration settings, bandwidth history etc in the directory
in which it was installed, however by using a command-line option you can specify an alternative
location for these files - creating one for each user who will use the application.
BitMeter accepts a command-line option of the format:
BitMeter2.exe -D <Directory>
Where <Directory> represents the full path to the directory containing the users configuration files.
For example, to create 2 separate profiles for the users Bev and Kev, perform the following steps:
Create 2 directories, one for each user's BitMeter configuration files - for example
'C:\bev\bitmeter_files\' and 'C:\kev\bitmeter_files\'
Create a shortcut for each user, specifying the path to the BitMeter executable file, followed
by the '-D' option, and the path to the appropriate directory. So Kev's shortcut would
read something like:
"C:\Program Files\Codebox\BitMeter\BitMeter2.exe" -D "C:\kev\bitmeter_files\"
and Bev's shortcut would read:
"C:\Program Files\Codebox\BitMeter\BitMeter2.exe" -D "C:\bev\bitmeter_files\"
Each user may then run BitMeter using their own shortcut, and can maintain their own set of
configuration options, and their own upload/download history.
