We would like users to be able to take advantage of a new way to backup and copy their configurations.
When Intersection Magic updates are sent to users, the 'custom configuration' that was sent for the first install is not included with the update cd or diskettes. The result is that, for a network install, no data directory (containing imwuser.exe) is created, and thus the 'client' side of the install can not take place. For a local install, only the demo/tutorial is installed, there is not IMW icon or DATA directory.

Since the earliest version of Intersection Magic, the install program has looked for a file called cityid.txt to identify configurations to include in the install process. This file always needs to be included in the data directory of the install diskette, and on the hard disk. Beginning with version 6.002, this cityid.txt file is also used by the Intersection Magic program to identify that it is running in a valid directory, and to describe the configuration. This article describes how to create such a file.
