My path has this in it: ";C:\Program Files\PTC\Creo 1.0\Parametric\bin".

An easy way to permanently modify the path, on Win7, is to goto the Control Panel -> System and Security -> Systems -> Advanced system settings -> Advanced Tab -> Environment Variables button -> Then in the System variables section find the PATH variable. Just add the path to the bin folder to the end (with the ; in front of it).

The way to it in Win XP and Vista is similar. You can also get to the system dialog by right clicking on "My Computer" and selecting "Properties".

Here is a screen shot.

You add the path to the bin directory to the system variable "path" then from the command window browse to the folder you want to purge and run purge.bat

Thanks for the reply. I used to do the same in PRO E WF/5, but unable to do the same in CREO/Paramatric 1.0.

the below message appears in command prompt.

Vinay,

your PATH variable does not contain path to CREO\bin directory (something similar to C:\PTC\proeWildfire 4.0\bin). Correct this "defect" and try again.

Hi everyone,

I set the path as Paul showed in the pic, the path command outputs the path... but The purge command in the command prompt isn't recognized.

I've tried launching the command prompt from within Creo and in windows, with no luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!!

Hello,

tell us, what installation directory you entered during installation. Also tell us what software do you use (ProE WF5 or Creo 1.0 Parametric).

Hi Martin,

Running Creo Parametric m0.20.

At install, I accepted the default install location (C:\Program Files\PTC)

Also, here's some of the output from the "path" command:

And the the location of the purge.bat file:

C:\Program Files\PTC\Creo 1.0\Parametric\bin

Thanks!!!

Hello,

correct your PATH setting.

You added C:\;Program Files\PTC\Creo 1.0\Parametric\bin path,

change it to C:\Program Files\PTC\Creo 1.0\Parametric\bin

Perfect, Thanks Martin!!!

purging in creo
1)open Command Prompt window(either in creo or manually from start button) and enter PATH command.
You will see the content of PATH variable.
To be able to run purge.bat,
you have to ensure, that PATH variable contains the path to bin
(example C:\PTC\Creo 2.0\Parametric\bin)
if there is \PROGRA~1\PTC\MKSTOO~1\bin64;C:\PROGRA~1\PTC\MKSTOO~1\bin;C:\PROGRA~1\PTC\MKSTOO~1\bin\X11;C:\PROGRA~1\PTC\MKSTOO~1\mksnt;C:\Program Files (x86)\PC Connectivity Solution\;%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;%SYSTEMROOT%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\
then change the path file.
To do it follow instruction as given below

2)To get to the path statement in Windows 7,
type "path" in the start menu search;
edit the system environment variables;
environment variables; look for path in the system variables.
it should have following type of path
(example C:\PTC\Creo 2.0\Parametric\bin)

if it is \PROGRA~1\PTC\MKSTOO~1\bin64;C:\PROGRA~1\PTC\MKSTOO~1\bin;C:\PROGRA~1\PTC\MKSTOO~1\bin\X11;C:\PROGRA~1\PTC\MKSTOO~1\mksnt;C:\Program Files (x86)\PC Connectivity Solution\;%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;%SYSTEMROOT%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\
Replace it by above path till C:\Program Files (x86)\PC Connectivity Solution\;%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;%SYSTEMROOT%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\
It should look like C:\PTC\Creo 2.0\Parametric\bin;C:\Program Files (x86)\PC Connectivity Solution\;%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;%SYSTEMROOT%\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\
then it will operate purge.bat located in bin folder in creo 2.0
I use notepad to edit the path statement with copy and paste.
Some path statements can get quite extensive

It work perfectly!

Thank you very much.

Best Regards

Davide Lambertini
