In the ISO you can find various config files, the CFG files. Those files can be modified to change the behavior of the software.


The file wd-options.cfg will change all the settings in the software

The file network.cfg will change all network settings of the client

The file pxe-options.cfg will change all the settings of the PXE server. 

Make sure they have this exact name, any other name will fail to load in to the software


Please note you might want to use all the sample-[filename].cfg as source of your settings. 


All the setting options starting with a #-sign. You need to activate the setting, most cases this is the last line, by removing the #-sign from only that last line.


Example:   Below part is to change the language of the software. By removing the # from the last line and by changing the value from 0 to 3 the software will  switch to Spanish.


# Set the specific display language that WipeDrive uses. The following languages

# are supported (English is default):

#    0) English

#    1) French

#    2) French Canadian

#    3) Spanish

#    4) Japanese (note: this requires the X-Windows version to support Japanese input)

language-id=3



In case it's not clear how to change the config file we do offer the option to create a wd-options.cfg file from the GUI. You can boot the software from a USB, change all the settings and check the box "Save Out Config" found in the bottom of the screen. Once all settings are changed, click on "accept" and a new wd-options.cfg is created. 

This works on the PXE software as well on the Client software, but only for wd-options.cfg. Other config files need to be change manually. Our support team can help with this.



Note! The filename of the settings file has to be: wd-options.cfg, network.cfg or pxe-options.cfg to make it work for the software. Any typo in the filename will give issues while booting the software. 


Note! You cannot change values outside the range. So language ID 6 does not work and will give errors. Changing True in to False might not work either. Just command out that feature by putting back the #-sign.
