File system path to the directory in which the Zim software is installed.



Return Value

A path name. Cannot be reset by an application program.


$ZimPath is set to the value of the Zim entry in the registry. If this value is not set, the variable is set to the null string (which is interpreted as the current disk directory).

To indicate the current ZimPath directory in a file name, start the name with an octothorpe (#) character.

Note: For Zim on Windows users, if $ZimPath is pointing to a directory that contains old DLLs, you can get the following error message:

ZIM caused Segment Load Failure in Module zim.exe @0002:511C.

Ensure that $ZimPath is not pointing to old DLLs.
