While you open the eStudio application, Workspace Selection dialog is shown prompting for the workspace directory. Workspace is a directory where all the repositories (Event Processes, Services and other metadata) are stored.

The default workspace is set to $FIORANO_HOME/runtimedata/eStudio/workspace. It is recommended to use the default workspace, but the you may change the workspace if required. The Remember workspace option can be selected to save the workspace used and not to show the dialog next time eStudio is launched.


The workspace preferences are stored at FIORANO_HOME/runtimedata/eStudio/WSprefs.properties

The following preferences are stored in workspace preferences:

  • wsLastUsedWorkspaces
  • wsRemember
  • wsRootDir

If the user chooses a workspace and selects the Remember workspace option, and, if later, the Workspace Selection dialog has to be shown, then this can be done by changing the value of wsRemember to false in the workspace preferences.

  • When the Fiorano eStudio has completely launched, the user can switch between different workspaces. The option to switch the workspace is present at File -> Switch Workspace.
  • The current workspace selected is shown in Fiorano eStudio title bar.

By default, eStudio is launched in Offline Event Process Development Perspective mode and the offline repository is populated when eStudio is launched for the first time.

In Case, eStudio does not load properly, install XULRunner on your machine. Follow the guide lines from: https://developer.mozilla.org/en/Getting_started_with_XULRunner to install and add the following:

-Dorg.eclipse.swt.browser.XULRunnerPath=$XULRunnerHome/xulrunner to $FIORANO_HOME/eStudio/eStudio.ini and restart eStudio.


In Windows Server 2008, there are certain permissions settings that do not allow standard eclipse to function normally if eStudio is not running as an administrator. This will be resolved if eStudio is run as an administrator.
