Does anyone know if there is a way to specify the starting folder that ProjectWise Explorer opens when the application starts, or if there is a way to automatically start it to open the last folder the current user opened before PW was last closed? We seem to get random results as to which folder opens when we start PW.
ProjectWise will open in the last used folder of a datasource for a user after login IF their account is set to do that. In the user account properties, go the Settings tab, expand User Interface section, and make sure the check box is on for "Select last used folder in ProjectWise Explorer". HTH

It has been my experience that it goes to the last folder an action was performed in or on. If you just go to look at a folder and open the property dialog, it is not enough to be "last visited". (if the setting for the user has been turned on). I have also found that the last used for iDesktop plugins have their own recently used or last used list.
Hi, is there a command line i can add to the program shortcut in order to set as startup directory the default MS_DEF or _USTN_PROJECTWORKFILES directory? I do know it's possible to set the default user by adding the -wcUSERNAME & the default project using -wpPROJECTNAME, is there something similar for the startup directory? Thanks
