Pro/ENGINEER will read in config.win files from the following locations:

1. <loadpoint>/text/config.win



2. $home/config.win



3. $startup_dir/config.win

To make sure it is in the right local place start Pro/E. Select File>open and note where the current directory is. Customize your screen using Utilities>customize screen. Make sure the config.win file is saved to the same directory which Pro/E starts in. This should fix the problem. Otherwise just save a config.win somewhere and after you start Pro/E select Utilities>customize screen. Select File>open settings and browse for your config.win.

If you are using Windows OS change the script to find your home account.



set HOME =

set HOMEDRIVE=t: -> or whatever drive u want.

set HOMEPATH=%USERNAME%

set HOME=%HOMEDRIVE%\%HOMEPATH%



If you set HOME to a location then copy your config files there Pro will find them when it launches as kvision mentioned in their reply.

if you have any problems e-mail me [email protected]

This can also be acomplished by creating mapkeys that will load different config.win's.



I usually set up several for companies depending on the different mods of Pro/E they are using. Here are a couple of examples. Or email me and I can send them in another format.
