Get config to stay?

All -



I have a user whose Creo session is not picking up his config even though the 'Start in' folder is set correctly (and was working fine yesterday...). It opens with that prompt to pick a folder he has permission to, and then we have to import his config. Even after saving it, subsequent sessions are still requiring the same process.


I know I've seen this before, but I can't seem to get this one to stick - any ideas?


Thanks in advance-

Configs, at least in the WF an prior paradigm were read in this order upon each start up of a Pro/E session:


1. Install directory (Text folder, l believe is where it is stored - this is usually for company wide settings - typically companies will use a startup script that pushes the latest "company standard" config.pro into the client install folder before pro/E is launched)


2. Home directory config.pro (usually in Windows C:\users\%username%\ - usually for personal settings/preferences


3. Startup directory config.pro - this could be for particular settings you want to set for a project. Maybe a different client wants unique drawing templates/formats - you could have multiple projects with multiple shortcut launches on your desktop each with their own start-in directory with their own config settings for that project


last read-in option is the the setting that takes precedent unless you also use a "CONFIG.SUP" in the text directory. settings in config.sup cannot be overridden be settings in th config.pro files.



Hope this helps.

Does this user have read/write permissions for the “start in” folder?
