Do you need Open external file or Run some program while you working with Creo Parametric? You can use custom key sequence.
I tried this tip to open my Chrome web browser and it works, but it does not become the main window. On the monitor, it opens behind Creo.
Can I make it open in front of Creo?
I tried it with Chrome web browser - it is work perfect. Chrome was main opened window
(my OS - Windows 7 64bit)
I see the problem. I ran the mapkey with Chrome already open and so what happened is that a second instance of Chrome opened and did not become the main window.
If I close all Chrome windows it works as you described.
I wish the command prompt window with the black background did not stay open. Any ideas?
Try this to have the command prompt window close.
This example opens Google Chrome.
For your mapkey you can set and combine any of batch command (open / save / set custom variables / rename etc.) - your new mapkey Will be perfect and usefull.
In my example I want to show how you can open external file.
Thanks for comment
Very cool. Thanks Vladimir. I now have a mapkey using OS script to open Microsoft Calculator.
