MUSHClient and SQLite

MUSHClient, is a freeware MUD client. Since I wanted to be able to install the software on several systems, but have all of the systems use the same MUSHClient World Information files, which are stored as .MCL files, I wanted to see where the program stored the location for the worlds files. Of course, I could manually change the location within the Global Preferences on each system, but I wanted to see if there was a way I could just put the information in a .reg Windows registry file or set it with a script.

Initially, I thought the program stored the default world file directory location in the Windows registry, but I found that, though there was a DefaultWorldFileDirectory value in the registry, the program actually used an SQLite database, instead of the registry entry.

Passwords Plus Registry Keys for Databases

When a password database is created in Passwords Plus from DataViz, it creates the following registry key:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\DataViz\PasswordsPlus

The key will have a DaggerFolder value.

Value name:DaggerFolder
Value data:C:\Users\Jane\Documents\Passwords Plus

The directory listed will be the location where Passwords Plus creates its user folders where it will store individual password databases

Passwords Plus allows a user to have multiple databases specified by user. For instance, Jane Smith could create one with a username of Jane for her personal passwords and another one JSmith for her work-related passwords.

If she did, beneath the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\DataViz\PasswordsPlus registry entry, you would find the following: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\DataViz\PasswordsPlus\Users\Jane

And the following value would be found within that key:

Value name:DBPath
Value data: C:\Users\Jane\Documents\Passwords Plus\Jane\PassPlusDB.PDB

The value would specify exactly where the Passwords Plus database would be located.

If Jane created another user within Passwords Plus, named JSmith, the following would also be found within a HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\DataViz\PasswordsPlus\Users\JSmith key:

Value name:DBPath
Value data: C:\Users\Jane\Documents\Passwords Plus\JSmith\PassPlusDB.PDB

If you want to have multiple systems share the same databases, which will be accessible through a shared folder on a server, you could change the DaggerFolder and DBPath values. E.g., suppose there is a folder shared from MyServer with a share name of Shared and underneath that shared folder is a directory named Passwords with holds the various usernames created for Passwords Plus. Then you could have the following value for DaggerFolder

Value name:DaggerFolder
Value data:\\MyServer\Shared\Passwords

And you could use the following for a Passwords Plus username of Jane:

Value name:DBPath
Value data: \\MyServer\Shared\Passwords\Jane\PassPlusDB.PDB

If you wanted to copy these settings from one system to another, so that you don't have to manually edit the registry values on the second system, you can run regedit and navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\DataViz, click on it to select it, then select File and Export the registry settings to a file, say Passwords-Plus-Users.reg. You can then take that registry file to another system and double-click on it to enter the same values into the registry on that system.

Note: these notes were written for Passwords Plus for Windows 1.006 and 1.007 and may or may not apply to other versions.
