I would like to have all users directed to the same folder on their computer although not under their user name.
Normally the location of the Bricsys folder (and there for the sub-folder 'support') is at %appdata% (= a.k.a. current user) this is all fine and dandy but if a different user needs to use the computer then they don't have the settings that are needed and have to put a copy of the settings folders under their name which is a waste of time and space on the harddrive.
So I put the Bricsys folder under the general 'Users/Public' location. This works for all users on that machine.
However, If I do that then chances are that the program will give a warning message about not finding the default.pgp file because it seems that the path to look for it as set
as "C:\Users\name of user\AppData\Local\Bricsys\BricsCAD\V18x64\en_US\ and there for it only checks in that location. I can't find a way to change it, within the program.
Besides that, if with setting the Support File Search Path to the location I want, any changes aren't saved in the new location but under the name of the current user.
The help file states : "You can change in BricsCAD the path to local and roamable folders with system variables LocalRootPrefix and RoamableRootPrefix"
but those two 'variables' show up as being read only (greyed out).
What am I overlooking or doing wrong ?
Thank you in advance
