Config.pro loading on startup

Hello.


I'd like to know if there is a way to load a config.pro on startupwhen it is not in the current directory nor in proepath/text or standard loading points.


Thanks in advance.

During Startup:


Try creatinga trail file that loads the desired config.pro file. Run Pro/ENGINEER from the command line, passing it the trail file to execute. If you have set the system environment variable "CONTINUE_FROM_OOS" = 1, Pro/ENGINEER will not exit when it comes to the end of the trail file.


J-Link can execute mapkeys. Thus, you could create a mapkey and use a J-Link application to start execute the mapkey on startup. The drawback is the use of mapkeys. That isn't much better than trail files. I'mdon't know if J-Link has a "read config.pro file" function.


Before Startup:


You could change the startup working directory before starting Pro/ENGINEER. Or you could use a separate batch file to copy the desired config.pro into the startup working directory beforestarting Pro/ENGINEER.


Good Luck
