I have a DGN file. How could i publish this in DPR format so that i could view it through VPR viewer. Kindly help me on this as it could save me a lot of time. Thanks a lot for your help
If the file is in a folder that is "browsable" via IIS and through Internet Explorer. Than you should be able to click on the dgn it will render as a an image, you then can append at the end of the URL ...bikeframe.dgn?fmt=dpr which will call the VPR.cab file and initialize Publisher.
Best example is if you have Publisher installed, on the server in a Internet Explorer window type http://localhost/msexamples navigate in to the directories until you see .dgn files. Click on it, you'll see you can view the image in the browser, however cannot zoom in or out. Now, type at the end of the URL ?fmt=dpr.
Thanks a lot for your help. I tried by appending ?fmt=dpr and also ?fmt=dpr&pubcgi=dprclien but the drawing is not opening properly in browser. But the examples drawings provided in the folder are opening properly.
Only the text part of the drawing were appearing in the browser. Could u kindly help me out on this.
Since you are trying to use Projectwise Publishing Server directly, outside of a PRojectwise web client application, you will need to configure PublishingServer so that it can publish files that are in a path that's different form the examples. Please see the PublishingServer help.
