Hi,


Right click on your icon on your desktop. there should be a box with which you can choose pro's starting working directory. type in the ful path to your directory there and apply. next time you start pro up it should automatically use the chosen directory.


hope this helps

Tinag is right but in Wildfire 2.0 you have to set the following configuration option in your config.pro file


file_open_default_folder working_directory

Hi again,


I have found that using "peeps" or "people" is usually better than guessing a persons gender, helps to prevent any misunderstandings.

Hello.


I also need help with this.


I tried changing the config.pro file for wildfire2 to reflect the default directory. The line now looks like this:


file_open_default_folder d:\data


It is still not working correctly. Any suggestions?


Thanks you in advance!
