i created a simple mrr file with ProjectWise Menu Editor as you can see in the following image.
What i don't know is simply how to get it work in ProjectWise Explorer Client? I copied the mrr file into the x86 and x64 bin folders of ProjectWise but no luck. Because the function i like to use are standard ProjectWise document functions do i need to specify a dll or something else?
Thanks for you help!
Take a look at the documentation for details on how to use .mrr files. What exactly are you trying to accomplish? Perhaps calling a standard PW menu item but using a custom menu item? But what would be the point of doing that?

The Point of doing that is the fact that the menu is a little bit to long and our users want a menu with only 3 or 4 required functions as an alternative menu.
So i created a menu with the editor and i want to use the APPROVE and REVISE menu entries of the workflowrulesengine.dll.
Do you have any hints about configurate the menu item?
Have you considered creating a custom tool bar? Quite easy to do and you can put menu commands on it.
And users can tweak them to their needs without any programming.
That might be a way i already thought about. But how can i publish a custom toolbar to our employees ProjectWise Explorer Clients?
Hi Dan, I'm interested in this too. Were you able to get any information?I have a custom toolbar (MRR) which im trying to call the WorkflowRulesEngine.dll and was hoping there was a way to pick what action to run.Similar to what Christian is doing but using custom WRE states instead of just the previous/next.
A toolbar is a registry entry, so you can create the toolbar then export to a .reg file and get the users to import.The standard location is HKCU so they won't need admin privileges to import.
Location: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Bentley\ProjectWise Explorer\10.00\Settings.en\Find your toolbar (look at the MFCToolbar-XXXXX and look for your toolbars name)
You need to export the BasePane, MFCToolbar and Pane entries. I would suggest exporting then placing into one registry file for your users to run
