Testing for Demo DB

Hi there,

I have some code that is trying to drop a settings file into the database folder after configuration.

If the user selects the ActDemoDB there doesn't appear to be a database folder so the settings code fails.

Is there an easy way to detect whether an ACT DB is the demo file so that I can notify the user before they waste their time doing the configuration?

You could check the CurrentDatabase property for the database name and query the string to see if it contains "Act" and "Demo".
