Configure Designer for Windows for using multiple instances

Goal

Designer for Windows can be configured to use multiple instances. This enables the use of a single Designer for Windows installation for managing multiple KCM instances.

Modify itprep.ini

Open itprep.ini of Designer for Windows. This configuration file is located in the root folder of the Designer for Windows installation folder. For a default installation the location is:
C:\Program Files (x86)\KCM Designer\

For all instances add the following section:

[Server:<instance name>]
host=<host name>]
port=<port number>

<instance name> will be used as identification in the dialog for selecting the Repository instance. For example:

....
[Server]
host=KCMServer
port=2587
[Server:Instance01]
host=KCMServer
port=2587
[Server:Instance02]
host=KCMServer
port=2588
....

Choose the target Repository when logging in

In the login dialog for Designer for Windows, a new dropdown box Repository is added. The default option will connect to the server specified in [server] in itprep.ini. For the above example configuration, the dialog options look as following:
