Are there files installed, modified, or used by the Muse software that live outside of the ${MUSE_HOME} directory structure? Where do these files reside on my system?

There are files used by Muse that reside outside of the ${MUSE_HOME} folder. Below is a list of such files along with their location, depending on the Operating System.

1a) The vpd.properties file (before Muse 2104). This is the InstallShield's installation database. It keeps track of all Muse products installed and it is located under the installing user home directory on non-Windows platforms and in the Windows directory (if the user has write permissions) or in user's home directory (if the user has no write permissions in the Windows directory).

 

1b) The InstallShield directory (after Muse 2104, including). This is the InstallShield's installation database. It keeps track of all Muse products installed and it is located under the installing user home directory on non-Windows platforms and in the %HOMEDRIVE%/Program Files/Common Files/ directory or in user's home directory (if the user has no write permissions in the %HOMEDRIVE%/Program Files/ directory).

2) For running Muse servers as Windows services, each server will be registered to Windows as a regular service (using Windows registry).

 

2a) Before Muse 2210. The following files refer to Muse Services on non-Windows platforms:
/etc/rc.d/startMuseServices - used to start Muse Services;
/etc/rc.d/rc.muse - used to start/stop/restart Muse Services;

 

2b) After Muse 2210 (including). The following files refer to Muse Services on non-Windows platforms:
/etc/init.d/muse - used to start/stop/restart Muse Services;

 

2c) Muse Versions up to 2400 (including). The following files refer to Muse Services on non-Windows platforms. These are symbolic links to /etc/init.d/muse and belong to the service management system on Linux:
 /etc/rc3.d/K99Muse - used to stop Muse Services in run level 3;
 /etc/rc3.d/S99Muse - used to start Muse Services in run level 3;
 /etc/rc4.d/S99Muse - used to start Muse Services in run level 4;
 /etc/rc4.d/K99Muse - used to stop Muse Services in run level 4;
 /etc/rc5.d/S99Muse - used to start Muse Services in run level 5;
 /etc/rc5.d/K99Muse - used to stop Muse Services in run level 5;

Note: the rc[x].d directories could also be located under the /etc/rc.d directory (depending on your Operating System).

3) Temporary files: InstallShield creates a number of temporary files and directories in the user's temporary directory, necessary for running the Muse Setups. These files are are created and managed by the InstallShield installation software and are not under control of Muse Setups.

4) The options file (options or fields entered by the user when running a Muse Setup will be recorded here for later usage) will be stored by default in the user's home directory.

5) Files installed in order to create the Desktop or Start Menu shortcuts for GUI interfaces. This is very dependent of the Operating Systems on which Muse is installed.
