No, you really don't want to change the directory... PartQuest is a 3 step process
- PartQuest does the following, it downloads the data in a pqz file (PartQuest zip file). This should be your normal user download location.
- Doubleclicking the pqz file runs the extractor, which unzips the download package into a package Import PartQuest can use for your designated tool. I usually select a directory like C:\PQ_unzip for this, but this location can also be in "My documents" or a folder on your "desktop". The data placed here is temporary, until imported into your library.
- Next - Tools Import PartQuest Parts imports the data from the above directory into your user libraries (with the exception of the edx files which must currently be manually imported if you are using the integrated flow) Tools import PartQuest Parts uses PartQuest.ini
The PartQuest.ini DropboxFolder key and the pq.ini TargetDirectory key must have the same root directory. DropBoxFolder will also specify the flow.
To fix pq.ini
- Windows Start, Search %appdata%
- This should open Windows Explorer ..\appdata Create a subdirectory PartQuestTools
- Add the attached pq.ini file into the subdirectory
- close the PartQuestTools window
- double click on a downloaded pqz file to specify the folder to unzip the pqz files into. (Step 2 above)
pq.ini.zip 208 bytes
I'm new to this board, where it the attachment pq.ini file?
