Creating a Personal ZUP File:

The Dynamics NAV ZUP file is used to store a client's workstation personal settings. It remembers the connection to the Serenic Navigator Database server, and other settings like column display. This tip explains how to create a personal ZUP file. The Dynamics NAV client will create a default ZUP file named fin.zup. However, if you have multiple companies, you may want to create a shortcut for each and have those shortcuts always open up to a certain company.

Right click the existing program icon and select copy.
Paste anywhere on your desktop.
Right click and rename the icon, e.g. Navigator - Company 2.
Right click the new icon and select properties.
In the properties window, locate the tab with the Target box. Click into it and right arrow to the end.
After the last character (which should be an "), type a space and then ID=Name.zup. "Name" represents the name you want to give your personal zup file, e.g. Company2.zup. (Note, the periods after these examples are for punctuation only.)
Click Apply and OK to close the dialog window.
Now, when you double click the new icon, it will create the new ZUP file. You will need to connect to the server and open up the company as you did the first time connecting to Serenic Navigator. However, going forward, you can use this icon exclusively for that company. Repeat for other companies as needed.

Note: Depending on which operating system you use, the location of the ZUP file will be:

Vista: C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming - Where "username" is your computer user name.
Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\ - Where "username" is your computer user name.
Activate "show hidden files and folders" on your computer to get to these locations. Your IT staff should be able to assist you with this.

Saving a ZUP File:

If you have more than one session of Serenic Navigator opened, saving a ZUP file does not always happen. An end user will commonly open up the application, minimize it, and then instead of maximizing the application, they double click the icon and log back on. Since the application leverages version control, it needs to verify if you want to save changes to the database, e.g. hiding a column. The newly opened version contains the change, but the minimized one does not. Therefore, when you close them down, Navigator is asking whether you want to save the changes you made to the Db. Although the safe bet is typically no, in this case you should probably answer yes. By answering yes, your column changes will be saved. Note that each time a session is opened, it is using up a user license and may lock others out of the system if the maximum number of users sessions is reached.
