Startup parameters for Desktop

Startup parameters for Desktop

You can pass any parameter to Kadeck's Java backend by adding them to the KA_DECK_OPTS environment variable.


  1. cmd /c "SET KA_DECK_OPTS='-Xmx6G'&KaDeck.exe


  1.  launchctl setenv KA_DECK_OPTS "-Xms6G" && open


  1. KA_DECK_OPTS="-Xmx6G" ./KaDeck
The above temporary environmental variable declaration won't be available across invocations, but all supported OSes allow you to persist environmental variables.
