Here’s a handy tip from Bentley's John Frampton.
For every UCF file you have on your PC, a UPF is generated.
You could set the following variables to have only one UPF created for the application. The UPF that is created will be based on the windows log on.
_USTN_PREFNAMEBASE = $(_USTN_HOMEPREFS)$(USERNAME)
MS_GROUPPANELPREF = $(_USTN_PREFNAMEBASE).GroupPanels.xml
MS_TASKDIALOGPREF = $(_USTN_PREFNAMEBASE).TaskNavigation.xml
If you are using multiple machines it is recommended that you include the application name in the variable definition.
_USTN_PREFNAMEBASE = $(_USTN_HOMEPREFS)$(USERNAME)$(_ENGINENAME)
