    WDIR environment variable resets on every update

    kimmo.lindholm

      Why the WDIR_PADSVX_X_Y environment variable resets on every installed update?

       

      We use corporate directory there, local;corporate e.g. WDIR_PADSVX_2_3=E:\PADSProjects\vx23;X:\PADS\vx23

      but after i install update (e.g. vx2.3 update 7 --> update 8) this variable resets to WDIR_PADSVX_2_3=E:\PADSProjects\vx23 removing the part after semicolon.

          Here's how I deal with that "feature". I rename the variable (adding a letter prefix ex: WDIR_PADSVX_2_3 -> xWDIR_PADSVX_2_3). Then when the update is complete, remove the variable created by the update, and rename the original variable. Another way would be to create a batch script that sets this variable to the corporate location that you can run after the update.  Hope this info helps
