Re: Config file location

Hi

If you have not set a Start in Directory; Set it first

And then place your config.pro and config.win in the Start in directory.

After this when you start your pro-e it will read the config.pro in the Start in Directory

You can change the rest of your changes in this config.pro

To set Start in Directory

Right click on the desktop Pro-e Icon

Go to Properties

Now you can set your required Start in Directory

I hope this will help you

Re: Config file location

Thanks for the reply Mahanta,

I have tried this on my machine, the only problem is that the uwgm.log, std.out and std.err files are getting created at the same shared location.

what actually i need is that i want to place the config files on the shared location, not on the local machine.

is there any config settings that i can make in local config file (in text directory)? that when ever i launch proe the local config file reads the config file which is on the server.

Re: Config file location

Hello.

From my understanding there is 3 tiers of configuration files for Pro/Engineer

-Config.sup

-Config.pro (in the installation directory)

-Config.pro (in the Start In directory a.k.a the default working directory when you launch Pro/E)

All 3 of these configuration files are read in by Pro/E when it is launched. These files are listed in a order for a reason. The Config.sup file is the "master" configuration file. If an option is listed in the Config.sup file and is also listed in either of the Config.pro files it is the Config.sup that will override any contradicating settings. This means the Config.sup and Config.pro can be used to "force" a setting on local users. While the Config.pro found in the Start In directory can be used by the local users to "customize" any additional settings that arent being overrule by the Config.sup or Config.pro found in the install directory.

I hope this helps shed some light on which configuration files you should and shoulnt be using from the shared location. Typically a Batch file can be created on each local machine that will replace the Pro/E shortcut.

The Batch file can be programed to copy the needed configuration files from the shared location and then launch Pro/E from the instalation directory.

Re: Config file location

Can you elaborate on the proces of creating a "Batch file", or provide a link to a page that can give more detail on this?
