different start up icons

Is it possible to have pro/e short cuts on your desktop that automatically use different config. pro files for different clients?

Give every user his own start in directory in the shortcut and place there their own's

The answer is yes, but if every user wants different start up icons, that's going to be in a file. If you're talking about shortcuts like mapkeys (also referred to as macros or hotkeys), that's going to be in a file. Like Huug said, place that in the user's startup directory. Also, make sure that the config.sup file doesn't have any mapkey settings-- otherwise, users won't be able to create their own.

If you are using Wildfire, it has a built-in capability to do this based on the number of psf files (startup commands) you create during the setup process.
