Distributing settings over USB

On Android, the Velocity Client looks for the deployment files in the first external storage partition. It is the storage you see when you connect the device over USB. It is usually called 'internal storage', though it is sometimes named 'SD card' or 'external', even though it is not an SD card or external to the device. In the first storage partition, the files need to be in the following location:


If you have an SD card in the device, make sure you create the directory in the storage on the device and not the removable SD card.

On Windows, the Velocity Client looks for the deployment files in the %Programdata%\Wavelink\Velocity directory.

The location for deployment files on Android devices changed in version 2.1.11. When possible, files in the old location (/com.wavelink.velocity) on existing Android devices will be copied to the current location the first time the Client is launched after the Client is upgraded to the newer version.
For devices running Android 11 or newer, the Velocity Client cannot access the files in the old location. You can either move the files manually or install the Velocity File Assistant app to copy the files to a location the Client can access. For more information, see Velocity File Assistant.

To distribute a project to the Velocity Client over USB

1.In the Console, click the Deploy button to deploy the project.

2.Use a USB cable to connect the device to the computer where the deployment files are, or copy the files to a USB drive and connect it to the device.

For Android devices: in the first external storage partition, copy the file or files (.wldep, .wlxgp, or .wlvpk) into the Android/data/com.wavelink.velocity/files directory.

For Windows devices: copy the deployment file or files (.wldep, .wlxgp, or .wlvpk) into the %Programdata%\Wavelink\Velocity directory.

For iOS devices: connect the device to either a Mac or a Windows computer with iTunes installed, and copy the deployment file or files ( .wldep or .wlxgp) into the device's Velocity directory. For instructions on using Finder on a Mac, see Use the Finder to share files between your Mac and your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch. For instructions on using iTunes on a Windows or Mac computer, see Use iTunes to share files between your computer and your iOS or iPadOS device. TE profiles will not show up on an iOS device, since the Velocity Client for iOS only supports Web sessions.

3.Launch the Velocity Client on the device.

The app automatically imports the project details and displays the new host profile in the list of available profiles. Tap the name of the host profile to connect.

If the files are not copied into the correct location, or if the Client fails to import the deployment file, an Android device user can navigate to the file location on the device and tap the deployment file to launch it. This launches the Velocity Client and imports the file.
