how to make my personal.ucf is written in the same directory as my personal...UPF (on the network)
_USTN_HOMEROOT = $(_USTN_ORGANIZATION)USERS/$(USERNAME)/$(computername)/
_USTN_LocalUserAppDataPath = $(_USTN_HOMEROOT)/
but still the personal.ucf is written to:
C:\.....\AppData\Local\Bentley\OpenBuildingsDesigner\10.0.0\prefs (on the computer where OBD is installed)
what other variable do I have to change too
Currently, you can't. this is restricted. Even setting the _USTN_USERCFG = variable has no effect. It's annopying
You should find that it is possible to relocate the UCF in Update 5 (this was a platform change first available in MicroStation). I have not checked this in OpenBuildings Designer yet but will do so soon. Previously every file other than the UCF could be relocated.
Note that we continue to recommend that user preferences are always stored on the local drive, using IT system functions to enable roaming.
We in the company all store the preferences on the server, as we use different machines for drawing it is interesting to store the settings in one directory on the server. So if we change machine, we can save a copy of the preference directory. It is important to have a separate directory per machine because versions or preferences can be different from one machine to an other.
Thanks for the additional information. That is a familiar scenario, well managed and with good network speeds it should work happily.
so..... it would be nice to haven control about the personal.ucf
