Is there a way of combining two config.win files?

Running WF3 M230.

Any help would be great.

cheers

The best way I know how is to have them in two different locations: Have the forst in the load point, the second in your start directory.

1.
Start Pro/e with no config.win file.
2.
Load config.win #1 from one directory
3.
Load config.win #2 from another directory
4.
Save the results to config.win #3 in a third directory

Be aware, merging config.win files can produce unpredictable results.
They are supposed to be cumulative, and are, but not always in the way
you'd expect them to be.

Or rename both to one.win and two.win. Then both can be in the working dir
and they can still be loaded one after the other.

One caution:

If config.win files  are amended by overloading one file after another, they
are subject to corruption, . Especially if any were born in an earlier rev
of WF. This can make things unstable.

If you are moving to a new version of WF, it's best to create a new one from
scratch.
