Hi, I'm working on my Creo Parametric 2.0 startup script. M010, WIN 7 x64. My plan is to launch parametric.exe, which loads parametric.psf. In the PSF, I RUN my BAT file to standardize. Any drawbacks you can think of.
For Pro/E I run a BAT, which standardizes, then calls proe.exe, so this is a little different than that, which makes me ask the question. The advantage I found is, this allows users to PIN parametric.exe to the taskbar and retain a Start In directory.
BTW, is there an ENV VAR for the start-in directory?
No one really baulked at the use of the PSF file to call RUN the BAT file. I think it is a great idea because it allows you to launch Creo from the default icons/exe file and then configure the session using the PSF chooser running different BAT files.
If you want to make your BAT Pin-able, Brad Sessions has this tip:
I start Pro/E with a bat file and was unable to pin the shortcut to the taskbar until I added the following (red) to the Properties before the bat filename:
