There are several folders related to Stonefield Query:
Program folder: the folder the Stonefield Query program files are installed in. By default, this folder is under C:\Program Files on your system, but you may have chosen to install it in a different location or on a network server. This folder is probably read-only due to Windows security. As a result, some files Stonefield Query needs to write to are stored in other folders.
Data: the Data subdirectory of the program folder contains "system data" files Stonefield Query needs, such as the license file, the users files, the error log file if errors occur, diagnostic files, and so forth. All users have read-write permission to this folder since Stonefield Query must be able to write to these files. If you want to change the location of this folder (that is, you don't want to use the Data subdirectory of the program folder), see the Changing the Location for Reports topic in the Stonefield Query help file (SFQuery.CHM).
Project folder: this is the folder where the Stonefield Query project files are installed. Although on your system they will exist in their own folder, on a user's system, these files can be installed in the program folder if desired, since typically they are read-only for the user.
Reports folder: the first time you run Stonefield Query, the Setup dialog asks you to specify the folder where reports should go. You can either specify a folder on your system or one on a network server, but in either case, it must be a folder you have read-write permission to. This means you likely cannot select the program folder, since as mentioned earlier, this folder is often read-only. The Data folder is a possible location. The location you specify is stored in DATA.INI in the Data folder. You can edit this file to change the location if necessary; see the Changing the Location for Reports topic in the Stonefield Query help file (SFQuery.CHM). This folder contains several subdirectories:
Reports: the folder contains a directory structure that matches the folders you see in the Reports Explorer, with each folder containing export (SFX) files for the reports in the folder.
Schedules: XML parameters files for any scheduled reports.
Templates: export files for all templates in the Template Editor.
Sample Templates: this subdirectory of the program folder contains the report templates Stonefield Query comes with. These are automatically imported the first time the application is started but are available in case you delete some templates and later wish to re-import them.
Windows System: Stonefield Query installs several DLL and OCX files (special system files) it needs in the Windows System folder (named System32 on a 32-bit system and SysWOW64 on a 64-bit syste,). These files are only installed if they don't already exist, but are installed on your system even if you installed Stonefield Query on a network server.
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\VFP: this folder contains additional DLL files Stonefield Query requires. These are installed on your system even if you installed Stonefield Query on a network server.
