Distributed Files

 

When installing Mimer SQL with the PRODUCT INSTALL command, a new directory named [MIMERxxxxx] is created under SYS$COMMON:, where xxxxx is the version number of the product. A few files are placed outside the Mimer directory in system directories.

Files in System Directories

The names of files placed in system directories are suffixed with _xxxxx, where xxxxx is the version number of the Mimer product.
