Summary
You can customize the user interface of SoftLINK to restrict access to particular functions. These changes can be made by editing the client32.ini file and the registry.

Details
The Settings for the SoftLINK Tutor interface are stored in the registry key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\NetSupport Ltd\PCICTL\ConfigList\SoftLINK Class Control

By adding certain values to the key above, you can disable certain User Interface options. To disable a function, add string values in the following format UI\Disable%Function% = 1 where %Function% is the name of the function you are trying to disable –

UI\DisableChat=1
UI\DisableClipBoard=1
UI\DisableFileTransfer=1
UI\DisableShow=1
UI\DisableBlankScreen=1
UI\DisableWatch=1
UI\DisableShare=1
UI\DisableControl=1
UI\DisableReplay=1
UI\DisableReboot=1
UI\DisableMessage=1
UI\DisableExec=1
UI\DisableRegistryIO=1

Changes similar to these can be made at the client machine to disable functions. These are made in the client32.ini file which can be found in your SoftLINK installation directory. e.g. DisableShare=1

NOTE: After editing the client32.ini file on a client machine, you must create a new checksum by doing the following procedure.

Download the CKSINI.EXE utility, if you have not already done so. The CKSINI.EXE utility is used to apply a new Checksum value to the Client configuration file.

The Syntax for the CKSINI utility is:    CKSINI FILENAME

Where FILENAME is the path and filename of the Client Configuration file.

e.g. CKSINI C:\Program Files (x86)\SoftLINK Class Control\Client32.ini
