Probe distribution questions

Couple of questions regarding probe development and packaging.


I have written a new probe that uses needs both a config file and a data file. Once deployed, I can edit the config file by double clicking on on the probe (bringing up the 'raw config' editor and that is fine). I can not find a way of editing the data file though once deployed. In the probe definition, the data file is listed in the 'Date File' field. I seem to recall seeing a Nimsoft probe that when I go to configure it, it pops up and says that there are both a config and a data file and asks which one I would like to edit. How do I go about getting that dialog or otherwise editing the data file after deployment?


Second question. Once I have the probe packaged in my development environment, I want to be able to deploy it to production env. so I want to make it into a zip file that I can then copy from dev to prod. I can't seem to find any instructions on how to do that. Any pointers would be appreciateed.
