Aeocsim connect command line arguments

I'm in the process of implementing changes to our companys workspace to get Connect Edition running.

We have previously had a very simple method of running Aecosim V8i, the only thing we did was setting a Windows System Variable (_USTN_WORKSPACEROOT) to the network folder where the workspace was, and everything was running nicely.

This isn't working anymore,as _USTN_WORKSPACEROOT is not the same anymore.

First thing therefore was undefining this Windows System variable, and instead running V8i with command line switch "-wrM:\Microstation\Workspace\".

V8i still working the same way as before, which is a nice thing.

My question now is, can I do the same thing with Connect Edition?

The purpose would be the same, the program shouldn't look for the 2 configuration files ConfigurationSetup.cfg and WorkSpaceSetup.cfg on a local drive, but on the network.

  • That's a bit of a "hen or egg" problem, as I didn't have any networked custom configuration yet.

    But as far as I understand it should be possible to fix that by changing the configuration files.

    • I did change the local ConfigurationSetup.cfg
    • I removed the ConfigurationSetup.cfg from the networked "Configuration" folder

    The ConfigurationSetup.cfg looks like that:

    _USTN_CUSTOM_CONFIGURATION = M:/Microstation/Workspace_Connect/Configuration/

    %if !defined (_USTN_USER_CONFIGURATION)

    So far that looks good.

    I do have another problem with configuration in addition, but I'll open a new post.
