LOOKING AT THE HISTORY OF THE WINDOW'S REGISTRY

In 16-bit applications, developers used to keep track of application-specific options by using INI (*.ini) files, also known as profiles. These files were set up in a way that you could specify sections and items with values assigned so that you could read from within your application to perform tasks or customize your application. Applications such as Access 2.0 would use one of these files to specify:

  • The workgroup file (System.mdb) to be used

  • ISAM driver options

  • Jet locking options

  • Other system defaults
