I have 2 users, on different shifts, that need to use the same computer.

I have 2 users, on different shifts, that need to use the same computer. An error/warning pops up when attempting to register the server for the second user. It is regarding the cache being registered to another user.

What do I need to do to allow multiple users on one computer and not affect the other users workspaces?

Re: I have 2 users, on different shifts, that need to use the same computer.

This can be controlled using the following environment variables depending on whether you are using Creo or a 3rd part CAD app:

PTC_WF_CACHE

PTC_WF_ROOT

PTC_WLD_ROOT

Make sure when you define these variables that you use the username in there eg PTC_WF_CACHE = c:\windchill\%username%

That way whoever logs on will create their cache in a unique area

Simon,

Thanks for the tip.

I used your %username% idea at the end of all the .psf files in the ....parametric\bin directory

ENV=PTC_WF_ROOT=C:\WINDCHILL_CACHE\%username%

Best regards,
