search_path not working in WF3


I'm working on WF3.0, build M060. I've entered two search_path locations in my config.pro file.
When I open an assembly, ProE cannot find the files that are located in those two locations.

I've tried different "tips" from ptc's help, like leaving a space behind the location, putting the path inside quotations, etc.

None of that has had any effect. I have also tried entering the fields from the Proe tools options, browse function.
SStill doesn't work.

Is there a new configuration option that I need to set to enable search_path searching?

Thanks in advance.

RE: search_path not working in WF3





Thanks to the Nasa engineer who pointed me in the right direction offline.

I created a separate search.pro text file, with the directory paths listed, each to it's own line. I had to enclose the directories with quotations (due to the spaces in the path (ie. My Documents)).

Then I added a new config option to my config.pro, search_path_file and pointed it to the newly created text file. I relaunched Pro and it worked.
