EE7.x doesn't use the WDIR convention for all tools.

How come the new Part list tool in EE7.9.2 doesn't use the WDIR to find the default "PartListerDefaultsNL.ipl" file?  It only looks in the standard directory for the file.

 

We are installing EE7.9.2 locally on each user's PC.  I don't have any idea who has the software installed.  How am I supposed to get a good PartlisterDefaultNL.ipl file copied to each user's PC?

 

The WDIR was one of the best features of ePD2005.  Why can't EE7.x use the WDIR as it was meant to be used?

 

This isn't the only tool that doesn't use the WDIR like you think it should.  The migration tools have the same problem.

 

It's been over 3 years since EE7.x first came out and Mentor still hasn't fixed this.  How much longer do we need to wait?
