Copy template settings

Hi,

We have multiple seats of MathCAD prime 7. How can I copy the template settings to another installation? On Creo parametric for instance there is a config.pro file that you can place in the user's profile that sets up the templates and other settings, according to company standards.

I found the following tech support article, which pointed me in the right direction, finally.

In brief, C:\ProgramData\PTC\Mathcad Prime\MathcadPrime.exe.V7.config is the xml file you need to edit and copy to each user's PC to set company standards for template location, licensing, etc.

Thanks, I've already worked this out. I really want to know how to copy those settings from a PC where this is already set up to another one, where it is not, without having to manually open the settings and change it. I assume these settings are in a registry hive, or contained in a settings file somewhere? 

I found the Default template for Spanish on my computer at:

C:\Program Files\PTC\Mathacd Prime 7.0.0.0\Default Templates\es\Default.mctx

I suppose that if you change    /es/    to    /en/    you get the English default.

 

Success!

I'm a little further with this now. It seems the settings are stored in an xml file, called user.config, in a folder under the user profile:

 

c:\users\<username>\appdata\local\PTC\MathcadPrime.exe_Url_<unique string of apparently random charachters>\7.0.0.0\user.config

 

Obviously, the random string seems to stop me from using a batch script to copy these settings to the user's profile when installing the software. Is there a supported way to do this?
