Creo 3 M040 / M070 Purge.exe

SOLVED

Creo 3 M040 / M070 Purge.exe

Did a fresh install with both Creo3 M040 and then tried M070

In both cases Purge.exe does not run

So I looked at my Environment Variables and not much listed there for PTC settings.

 

Case filed: Case# 12906038

Of coarse editing the Path and adding a bunch of support directories fixes it, but not going there on many PC installs.

PC must have only CREO 3 and no other older versions, obviously the older versions have their path set correctly and Purge will work.

 

Might be a bad install setup. Any one else see these issues?

 

Thanks

Jeff

Re: Creo 3 M040 / M070 Purge.exe

Confirmed

Purge.exe has a support page

https://support.ptc.com/appserver/cs/view/solution.jsp?n=CS36788

So not only does Purge not work, but ptcstatus, ptchostid etc.. will not as well.

Edit the Path environment and add, (based on my install)

C:\Program Files\PTC\Creo 3.0\M070\Common Files\x86e_win64\obj

C:\Program Files\PTC\Creo 3.0\M070\Parametric\bin

Test

Start / Run / CMD

In command prompt type, ptchostid

press enter

If you get info displayed, great works for you, if not add paths and try again.

Re: Creo 3 M040 / M070 Purge.exe

Works for me in Creo 3.0 M040.

1. Start cmd.exe and navigate to the right directory

     a. In Creo, Set Working Directory, Open System Window (under Utilities from the Home tab, sets directory for you) OR

     b. Open cmd prompt manually and change directory to working directory

2. Run purge.bat

     a. purge.bat - requires that PATH environment variable is set to the bin folder, e.g. PATH = "C:\ptc\Creo 3.0\M040\Parametric\bin" OR

     b. "C:\ptc\Creo 3.0\M040\Parametric\bin\purge.bat" (quotes required, no environment variable necessary)

Thanks,

Roger
