Since 2014.02 a Delft-FEWS.exe, Delft-FEWSc.exe and Delft-FEWS.ini are provided in the Delft-FEWS bin dir. Delft-FEWSc.exe is a console version of Delft-FEWS.exe and is only recommended when a console is required. The Delft-FEWS.exe can be renamed to a more suitable executable name, e.g. MyRegion_SA.exe (Stand alone), MyRegion_OC.exe (Operator Client), MyRegion_DDA.exe (Direct Database Access) or MyRegion_CM.exe (ConfigManager) depending on your needs. The executable needs to have a file with the same base name with the .ini extension, e.g. MyRegion_SA.ini, MyRegion_OC.ini, MyRegion_DDA.ini or MyRegion_CM.ini. You can use the sample Delft-FEWS.ini provided in the bin directory as a starting point. Below you will find a description of the entries that can be specified in the .ini file. JVM arguments are all specified in ascending order without gaps, i.e. vmarg.1, vmarg.2, .., vmarg.n. Similarly, command-line arguments are all specified in a numbered fashion such as arg.1, arg.2, .., arg.n. For specifying where to find the region home directory you will need to specify arg.1=<region_home>.
