In our launch batch files, I have a line that extracts the installed build code by looking in the Creo 2 installation folder:
for /f "delims=" %%A in ('dir /a:d /b "C:\Program Files\PTC\Creo 2.0\Common Files\"') do set BUILD=%%A
This reliably extracts the installed build so I can set a path to parametric.exe.
In Creo 3, this doesn't work as the build folder has been moved out of Common Files and into the main Creo 3 folder along with "Help" and "View Express". Using this line:
for /f "delims=" %%A in ('dir /a:d /b "C:\Program Files\PTC\Creo 3.0\"') do set BUILD=%%A
Sets BUILD to "View Express" instead of "M040" as I'd like.
How can I get my BUILD variable set properly in Creo 3?
