This may have noting to do with Arbortext, but maybe someone else has seen the problem. Or it may be an Arbortext problem since Epic is the program writing the file. My Setup = Windows XP, SP2, Arbortext 5.1F, Doc Architext and Editor with print composer license.
The idea is for each writer to have his own preference file, but to put everyone's preference file in a directory where I can investigate them when a user has problems.
The way I do this is to set the APTPRFWCF environment variable at system level to W:\PRF\%UserName%.wcf.
To make this a type REG_EXPAND_SZ and poke the filename in I use this little reg file:
;######## START REG FILE
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
;######## END REG FILE
Double click on the reg file and then look at the key in regedit and the value of APTPRFWCF=W:\PRF\%UserName%.wcf.
Now the problem:
For some people or on some machines, the filename created actually is "%UserName%.wcf" instead of their username. It works fine on mine and creates a file named "essliaw.wcf ".
Does anyone have a clue?
