Wc3270/Session Wizard

From The x3270 Wiki

The wc3270 Session Wizard is an application that allows wc3270 session files to be created, displayed and modified. It can also create desktop shortcuts (.lnk files) to start wc3270 sessions.

Command-line options

A session name can be given on the command line, which specifies a session file to edit. The session name may also be preceded by the -e option.

If no options are given, the Session Wizard displays a menu of available commands.

Menu options

Commands may be specified by number or name. If a name is used, parameters can also be provided.

The menu options are:

1. Create new session (new [name])
Create a new session.
2. Edit session (edit [name])
Edit an existing session.
3. Delete session (delete [name])
Delete an existing session.
4. Copy session (copy [oldname newname])
Copy an existing session to a new session.
5. Rename session (rename [oldname newname])
Give an existing session a new name.
6. Create shortcut (shortcut [name]).
Create (or update) a desktop shortcut for an existing session.
7. Migrate files from AppData (migrate)
Move sessions from AppData (where they were kept by older versions of wc3270) to the Documents folder.
8. Re-create all shortcuts (reshort) New in 4.2
Update all desktop shortcuts with the latest bug fixes. This is used to deploy shortcut-related fixes, such as Ctrl-C/Ctrl-V not working correctly on Windows 10 or the unintended use of Windows Terminal in Windows 11.

Administrator mode and public sessions

When the Session Wizard is run in administrator mode, it can be used to create sessions and desktop shortcuts visible to all users. The sessions are created in the Public Documents folder, and the desktop shortcuts are created on the Public Desktop.
