Finding Your Documents Folder

Scroll Prev Top Next More

All of our per-user files are placed under the user's 'Documents' folder.  We refer to this as the <Documents> directory or folder.  The exact name and file system location of the 'Documents' folder varies under different versions of Windows. You can navigate to it by:

double-clicking on the 'My Documents' icon on the desktop

selecting 'Documents' from the START menu

clicking on 'libraries->Documents' in file explorer.  


The default PDK installation and DigiVIew's plugin directory are located at:




NOTE: Do not place anything except your plug-in's executable (and optionally its help file) in the plug-in directory.  EVERYTHING (except *.rtf files) found in this directory is added to our plug-in list.  We can not determine if it really is a plug-in until we try to load it at signal creation time.  For example, a *.doc file is probably associated with WORD.  We would add it to the plug-in list.  If you create a signal using this file, we will attempt to launch the file (which would launch WORD) every time we capture data.  Likewise, your plug-in source would probably launch your IDE or compiler.
