Specifying a Commonspace directory Path


Specifying a Commonspace directory Path

We are storing our formats in commonspace and would like to store several other standard files here also. I am trying to set the search path for the formats but I'm not having much luck. I tried the following syntax suggested by another user a while back but it isn't working (pc170002 is the machine hosting the vault):

pro_format_dir ilcs://pc170002/Root Folder/Library/Formats

We are working on all Windows 2K platforms including the vault machine. Any help is really appreciated.

RE: Specifying a Commonspace directory Path


There is a bug (see SPR below) in which clicking on the format pulls it into
Workspace but not into the Pro/E session and gives the error "...format does
not exist in the database". Is this the problem you have? The workaround is
to open the format from workspace in proe after recieving the error to get
it into session, and then add it to your drawing.
