Hi! I am trying to find the site configuration file of my Microstation V8i SS10 system. I was able to find a path from the _USTN_SITE variable, and assumed that's where the site configuration sits. However, how to find the file name of the site configuration? I search around the system variables but couldn't find a clue.
If you open a file in MicroStation and use the key-in $ %explorer $(_USTN_SITE), Windows explorer will open in the location pointed to by the variable. In this folder you will see the configuration file(s). For a default install you will see the config file Standards.cfg.
MicroStation will read all config files in this location see also this Wiki

running a "debug" on your configured MicroStation will show you what configuration files and variables are set at the SITE level.

Hi Carl, thank you! I after reading the Wiki you sent I understand how it works now.
Just want to confirm another minor thing: I entered "%explorer $(USTN_SITE)" in the key-in. The Windows explorer opens with the default windows local location, but not where _USTN_SITE points to. Does it mean the system variables cannot be resolved in the key-in utility, and the path needs to be entered explicitly?
Thank you, I tried and this way should work. The debug output gives all the details.
