TFDSExplorerSettings.rsc

Is there a config to set the location of this resource separately to TFDIR_SETTING? By default, if someone changes the List of columns in Dataset Explorer, it makes the edit in the Dataset rather than the User folder (which is where it should happen).

    TFDATASET_EXPLORERSETTINGS is a configuration variable that specifies the location and name of TFDSExplorerSettings.rsc.  This is an old undocumented configuration variable that really has not been maintained so there are some limitations to it, but it will prevent it from creating in $(TFDIR)setting/ folder.  You can not define the location using configuration variables (Bentley variables or Environment Variables), it must be hard-coded.  You can specify the location only, or the location and the name of the RSC.

    Examples:

    TFDATASET_EXPLORERSETTINGS   = C:\Windows\Temp\

    TFDATASET_EXPLORERSETTINGS   = C:\Windows\Temp\DatasetExplorerSettings.rsc

    I hope this helps,
