Creo 7 purge UDF files (,gph)

Creo 7 purge UDF files (,gph)

Does anyone know how to use the purge function on subordinate UDF files (.gph)? The UI is the old menu manager, and I am not able to find instructions on how to actually operate it. I am able to purge the reference model that is driving the gph file, but the UDF purge seen below I am not able activate.

Hi,

  • use Open System Window command to open Command prompt window
  • in Command prompt window run purge command

@MartinHanak using the command line to run will purge all files in the directory where purge is run, will it not? I was attempting to purge a specific UDF file, not all files in a directory.  The UI command in the menu should only purge the selected object (a single .gph file)

Hi,

to get desired result, you can use following notation .... purge  udfname.gph
