## 16.7. Squish`.ini` Files

Squish uses some `.ini` files to control some aspects of the command line tools and the IDE's behavior. In general these files should not be edited; instead use the Squish IDE and Environment Variables (Section 16.6) to change any settings.

The `.ini` files include `ide.ini`, `server.ini`, and `qtwrapper.ini`. These files are stored in the `%APPDATA%\froglogic\Squish\ver1` folder on Windows and the `\$HOME/.squish/ver1` directory on Unix-like systems such as Linux.

Squish for Qt for Windows-specific If you are testing Qt applications on Windows that are not deployed or tested on other platforms you can force Squish to use native Windows dialogs rather than Qt dialogs (e.g., for opening files and for printing). To do this edit the `qtwrapper.ini` file (which may have to be created and put in the `ver1` directory mentioned above) using a plain text editor. Add a new line (or change the existing one) so that you have: ```UseNativeDialogs = 1 ``` With this in place, Squish will use native dialogs when running Qt applications on Windows. Note that this should not be done for applications that are to be tested cross-platform with the same Squish tests.
