The relevant SoftPAC files here (for example, if you use the defaults when you installed 9.6, like I did), can be found in:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Opto22\PAC Project 9.6\SoftPAC
They start w/O22 and have an .O22 extension.
While we’re brainstorming work-arounds (I can never resist a good brainstorm!), you could also leverage the Scratch Pad part of SoftPAC’s mem map, which you can “save to flash” (also written to a little file) values like those you could store in the Int32 or String part of the Scratch Pad mem map section. Do you see what I mean here? Of course, if you repeatedly store that info to the SoftPAC “flash,” you’d have to be careful if you ever ran the same strategy on a hardware PAC, since you could very quickly wear out the real/physical flash.
Warning: Sometimes when I brainstorm I come up with wacky impracticable ideas, but they often trigger someone else’s more useful idea. Or at least get the gears turning…
