How can I set the MIME type for all files using when running as "SYSTEM" on Windows machine?

Chris P (111912) | asked Jul 25 '13, 2:24 p.m.
 I've created a to set the mime of *.sas to text/plain and placed it in C:\Temp\.jazzscm with contents as follows:
*.sas: mime: text/plain

Running the following command:

scm --config "C:\Temp" checkin --checkin-deleted -d "C:\source" -v myComponent

Successfully checks in all the files, however, the jazz.mime is not getting set via the file.

Anyone have any thoughts on this?

 If that's the case, where is the home directory for "SYSTEM" in windows server 2008 R2?

I'm assuming it's under "C:\Windows\System32\config\systemprofile", and i've tried the .jazzscm folder there as well with no luck :-(

For Windows users, the home directory is your user directory (i.e. c:\Users{username}). As reference for others, Linux systems would be /home/{username}.

  The process running the scm.exe is the windows SYSTEM account, which doesn't have a directory in C:\Users.

It sounds like you could check %APPDATA% or %LOCALAPPDATA%.
