What are the Clarity configuration files?

The system files store the following informations:

  • C:\Clarity\Clarity.cfg (up to 6.2) and C:\Clarity\Cfg\Clarity.cfg (since 7.0)
    This file stores besides the hardware configurat ion information also information about the last user logged to a specific instrument and the custom instrument pictures used in the Main window.
  • C:\Clarity\*.dsk (up to 6.2) and C:\Clarity\Cfg\*.dsk (since 7.0)
    These files store the information about the last used project *.prj and the individual user preferences (windows configurations and layout, tables and graph preferences, user columns etc.). The Clarity.dsk file from the PGM subfolder on the installation media is copied during installation and used as a template for the *.dsk files of newly created users.
  • C:\Clarity\Projects\*.prj (up to 6.2) and C:\Clarity\DataFiles\Projects\*.prj (since 7.0)
    This file stores the info about the project subdirectories (the project directory has the same name as the project *.prj file) and the last used method, sequence, SST method and chromatograms.

The information about report setup, window layout, user columns and some other parameters for individual windows and instruments is stored for each user in the respective *.dsk file. Those parameters are not linked to specific methods or projects.
