Enabling multiple configurations allows you to setup Myriad to take several different configurations at start-up. This could mean that you have 2 different configurations, which allow you to choose between running with the standard network audio and running with an emergency local copy in case of network failure.
To turn on the option, simply tick the Allow Multiple Configurations selection on the Options menu in Myriad configuration. Now restart Myriad Configuration, and you will be presented with a choice of configurations. At the moment you will only have the one default. To create a new configuration, highlight the one you already have, and choose Copy Configuration from the Options menu. You will be asked to give it a filename and description before it will appear for you to select it. You can now change any options you wish to be different for this configuration and then exit Myriad Configuration.
Once turned on, the configurations will be available to choose from whenever Myriad is started. This is great if you need to switch between your configurations regularly, however, there are drawbacks. Firstly, it may cause confusion for some users and lead to them selecting the wrong configuration and therefore not having access to all audio or perhaps even the Q-Nxt log. Secondly, if the system restarts during the night, the auto restart will not be enabled until someone manually chooses a configuration to run with. If no one goes into the studio until the next morning, then the PC may sit there, not playing audio, for hours.
To avoid this problem, you can specify which configuration file to use with a command line switch (see the command line FAQ for more options) on the shortcut that the machine runs at start-up. Edit the shortcut to Myriad and add /LI:<full path to an INI file> to the target line. Eg. \"C:\\Program Files\\P Squared\\Myriad\\Myriad.exe\" /LI:C:\\Winnt\\Myriad.ini
