kodak dental imaging software - patient directory

Hello experts, wondering if there is someone here with Kodak dental imaging software experience.
I need to move the patient directory to point to the server but I'm unable to edit that from about menu. how can I change the patient directory to point to the server location?

Path :C:\TW
      Patient directory :C:\TW\J.rvg\J0000047

Which version are you running?
On current (Carestream) installs the settings should be under Options>Preferences...  General tab
As Configuration path and Projection Path respectively

If you are using Kodak Launcher then Tools > Options

Can you check the registry for a key called "Trophy dataPath" ?

What do you see in KDIS Options > Preferences ?

frankbustosSystems AdministratorAuthor Commented:
i see the same thing you have.
☠ MASQ ☠Commented:
Then the path is being managed in Dentrix
You'll probably need to set it using a command line.

See the attached which implies that KDIS just uses paths preset in the Patient Management System (in your case Dentrix)

So you should just need path to the Dentrix patient DB (you can get this from ep.exe in Dentrix) KDIS will passthough the patient ID from there.

 I tried this and it didn't work. I also called the Links department in Dentrix and they said this is something KODAK needs to assist with.
