We are currently using Windows 2000 with a view to going XP soon. In the past and before my time this firm used a third party front-end app to change environment variables, registries and pathing in profiles to run umpteen ACAD setups. It worked very well in its day but is no longer practical given upgrades to other 3rd party autocad apps we now use that has its own project manager interface. The IT guy is very attached to his old way of forcing all the temp files onto a D\~CADD\temp. He is also partial to repathing all the user's autocad local settings to D\~CADD\2006. He attempted to do this on his own with no luck. I am trying to modify an .arg file either help accomodate his requirements or tell him why he can't have his way this time. Am I right to suggest the C:\Documents and Settings\All Users area instead of C:\Documents and Settings\joeuser to push our files through? Is there a trick to swapping out all these pathings in either an arg file or do I have to do it through the options tab? Does anyone see any flaw in my thinking? Again, the Autodesk help file is too cumbersome to navigate for a quick answer. Once again I rely on Augi to pull my bacon out of the fire!
