Solution: Win7 ProE crashes on register after setting cache loc

Just for comparison, for our Wildfire 5/Creo Elements Pro 5 install, I use the following without issues on Windows 7 (64-bit) and Windows XP (32-bit).



SET PTC_WF_ROOT=%APPDATA%\PTC\ProENGINEER\%WFROOT%\.wf\.

SET PTC_WF_CACHE=%USERPROFILE%\ptc\Windchill



Yes, no quotes, even though our user names have spaces in them, which means the path that comes from "%USERPROFILE% has spaces in it. (WFROOT is a variable I set myself ahead of time. I don't want conflicts between ProE versions so I rename the default folder per version.)
