    Default location of kettle.properties file

    I have downloaded and installed v2.5.1 onto a Windows XP machine. I have created a repository and have created a transform which is running successfully.

    The docs mention a kettle.properties file located under the .kettle directory. I can see the kettle directory under C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\.kettle but I don't see the .properties file. When I try to set a variable in the database connections dialog box using ctl-space the properties that show up look like the system properties from the OS.

    Is the kettle.properties file something I create by hand and populate myself?

    kettle.properties you need to create manually (in the place you've already found). I made a JIRA request for it some time ago http://jira.pentaho.org/browse/PDI-151 but it's not in yet.

    Default kettle.properties not reading....

    I have kettle2.5.1 installed. I have a kettle.properties file inside the .kettle directory however the variables are not being read. Do I need to configure this somewhere else!?

    Set an environment variable KETTLE_HOME to your kettle directory.
