– Comments


When ZIMQTC starts, it connects to Zim Server using the database name specified, takes the appropriates parameters from the database configuration file and then either executes immediately the Zim command specified in the parameters or prompts to the user.

If one or more parameters are missing then ZIMQTC will prompt a login window for the user to provide the correct information, just like this example:
