Purging in 3.0

So how does it work now? Seems they change this with every release.

Michael,

Common reason for this error is system environment variable "PATH", adding the bin folder location in Creo Parametric 3.0 in the value of Path variable should fix the problem.

1. Start > Right Click on Computer and select Properties

2. Select Advance System Settings > Select View tab under System Properties tab

3. Select Environment Variable

4. Select variable "PATH" under System variables and Edit

5. Add path of bin folder under Creo 3.0\parametric in variable value (e.g. ;C:\Program files\PTC\Creo 3.0\<datecode>\parametric\bin)

Open System Window > Purge

> After launching Creo, Open System Window can find under Utilities

> In Part/Assembly/Drawing modes, Search for command Open System Window > Purge

Mahesh,

I went through steps 1-5 and changed my PATH location but now the system window in Creo will not even open.

Any thoughts as to what happened?

Matthew,

I guess that you have replaced original PATH value with  ;C:\Program files\PTC\Creo 3.0\<datecode>\parametric\bin.

The original PATH value on my Win7 PC contains ... %SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;%SYSTEMROOT%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\;%SystemRoot%\SysWOW64

The original PATH value on your PC should be different, but it also should contain the same path list mentioned above.

You have to add ;C:\Program files\PTC\Creo 3.0\<datecode>\parametric\bin at the end of the above mentioned path list.

That is exactly what I did, after a system restore (I did that before a got your reply) adding CREO pin folder path worked perfectly. Thank you Martin.
