user pref file


how to make my personal.ucf is written in the same directory as my personal...UPF (on the network)

I've created:

_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

  • Marc, can you confirm that the ability to set paths for all user files has been reinstated? This was an issue raised way back in beta testing. While we do run our files locally, we store them in a custom location that we have access to (don't you love It groups). With the use of our hta files in the build, each time you close the hta files the users files are then copied to the network. Gives us access to them and still gives users the ability to have their user files follow them to different machines.
