The StartupInfo editor permits E-Prime 2.0 Professional authors to design experiments that can load variables into the context from external .startupInfo files. In addition, E-Prime is capable of reading specially designed Context variables to alter the behavior of the experiment w/o having to alter the .es2 file. Two common examples of using a .startupInfo file are a) ability to change the COM port of the SRBOX in a lab that has 9 machines on COM 1 and one machine on COM 2 w/o having to edit the .es2 file and b) ability to auto increment the Subject number each time an experiment runs.
Please see the "New Features Guide" for more information about the StartupInfo Editor.
