Question: How do I get the WebConnect images to show
this document to a colleague
The image files must be in a StarTeam project for the
images to display correctly. Make sure you have added the Web Connect
image files to a project. The images are in a sub-directory in Web Connect
(which is under the install directory of the StarTeam Server). You will
want to add this folder, and all its files, to a new project. Create a new
project on your StarTeam server for this purpose and call it ?WebPics?.
When asked what the working directory will be for your new project, merely
point it to the Web Connect Folder in the StarTeam server installation
directory. A few folders should be added to your new WebPics project. The
most important folder is called: Images. Focus on the Images folder, and
add all the Web Connect image files to the your new project. There will be
approximately 92 new file items to add to the Images folder. (Note: Do not
name the alias ?Images? of the same name as the Images folder. This will
cause the images to not display properly.)
Go to User Manger in StarTeam server and add a new user with a logon name
of Guest and no password. After creating the new user, right click him, go
to Properties | Logon, and click "Set as blank password". Close the
StarTeam User Manger and StarTeam client. Leave the StarTeam VirtualTeam
Launch Web Connect Administrator. When In Web Connect Administrator, note
that you have a drop down field that reads "Under a user login (HKEY_CURRENT_USER)"
and "As a service (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE)". If you choose as a login, you
will have to run Web Connect as an application. If you choose as a
service, then you will start and stop the Web Connect Server from Control
panel under services. Choose how you want to run the Web Connect server.

Select or create a new server and edit the server's properties. Make the
user specified on the server properties the StarTeam Administrator (with
the appropriate password). Press OK.
Now create Aliases for all the projects you want Web Connect to present.
In addition, add the WebPics project as an alias. Call the WebPics alias "WebPics".
In the Web Connect Administrator, with the Projects tab active, select the
?WebPics? alias. Next, select the HTTP tab. Check the check box "Permit
direct HTTP access to Web Connect". Make sure the field Web Images URL
path is completely blank. Select the Server Project Alias drop down box,
and pick WebPics. Then click the button "Browse" and select the Images
directory. You probably want to select Generate Home Page. You also want
to apply these changes.
For each project alias, under the project Tab, select each alias and press
the properties button and go to the Files tab, and select assign content
type to files.
Select the project tab again, and then select the project alias that has
the web images (WebPics) and then click on properties. Under the Project
Tab, uncheck "Display in generated project listing page". Now select the
Users Tab, then select "allow Guest Account log on". Set the user name to
Guest. Leave the password blank. This will enable special access to the
files stored in the WebPics project, regardless of the user, so that the
user will always get graphics and other items. Hit OK, and close Web
