Configuring an alternative Phone Dialer

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

The PRS also allows you to use an alternative phone dialer application in place of the Windows Phone Dialer.


To configure the alternative dialer you need add a PhoneDialer entry to the [Main] section of the prs.ini configuration file on each PC that has the PRS Client installed:


1.Open the prs.ini file with an editor e.g. Notepad.


2.Add a PhoneDialer entry after the [Main] section heading specifying the full path of the dialer executable file e.g.


PhoneDialer=C:\Program Files\MyDialer\Dialer.exe


When the user dials a number the PRS executes the phone dialer and passes it the canonically formatted phone number. For example if the phone number on the Personnel form is 123-456789 and the PRS area code is set to 9 and the country code to 64 then the PRS would execute:


"C:\Program Files\MyDialer\Dialer.exe" +649123456789
