newton ============================================================= The following instructions are for standardizing Pro/ENGINEER for a typical customer environment. It is important to note this is a guideline which should be reviewed carefully by the Pro/ENGINEER system administrator before implementing. The standardization is made up of 5 specific areas: 1. 2. 3. 4. A standard config.pro, menu_def.pro, config.win file for common environment settings, map keys and menu macros. A standard part & assembly file which all new models will use as the starting point of the design. Drawing set up files to be used as a starting point for setting up english or metric drawing standards. Directory locations for material, drawing format, group(UDF), library, texture, and symbol directories.

All of these files are in a directory called "pro_stds" which should be copied to a directory along side the Pro/E loadpoint directory. For example, if Pro/E is loaded at: /usr/proe the pro_stds directory should be loaded at: /usr/pro_stds The Pro/ENGINEER administrator should have complete access to this directory and all users should have at least "read" privaleges. ============================================================= UNIX INSTALLATION OF STANDARD FILES ============================================================= To install the files for use on any UNIX system follow the next 5 steps. The "proe_loadpoint" is the directory location where the Pro/ENGINEER software is installed. In this example, it is /usr/proe: 1. All required files are in a directory called pro_stds which should be copied to a directory along side the Pro/E loadpoint directory. For example, if Pro/E is loaded at: /usr/proe the pro_stds directory should be loaded at:

win This will not work if config. you should add them to the config.pro or menu_def..pro example: and if the Pro/E loadpoint is: if the pro_stds directory is: /usr/proe /usr/pro_stds create the links by typing: ln -s /usr/pro_stds/configs/config. If your settings or macros conflict with those in the pro_stds directory. The Pro/ENGINEER administrator should have complete access to this directory and all users should have at least "read" privaleges./pro_stds. If the pro_stds directory is placed in this location. Change directory to proe_loadpoint/text Move the following files if they exist (you may need to login as root): mv config.pro /usr/proe/text/menu_def.pro proe_loadpoint/text/config.win /usr/pro_stds/orig_configs If Pro/ENGINEER has already been installed.win to /usr/pro_stds/configs/config./usr/pro_stds If you must put the pro_stds elsewhere. If so. return to step 3.pro /usr/proe/text/config.pro and menu_def.pro ln -s /usr/pro_stds/configs/menu_def. Create links from: proe_loadpoint/text/config.pro /usr/pro_stds/configs/config.pro you will find several paths starting with. verify neither of these files has config settings or menu macros that you want to keep. If this is the case.pro /usr/pro_stds/orig_configs mv config.pro ln -s /usr/pro_stds/configs/config. $PRODIR/. 3.pro and menu_def.pro files in the pro_stds/configs directory.pro /usr/pro_stds/configs/menu_def.pro alredy exist in the proe_loadpoint/text. 2.pro /usr/pro_stds/orig_configs mv menu_def. In config. 5.win /usr/proe/text/config. Pro/ENGINEER will be able to automatically find it by using the environment variable PRODIR which is set everytime you run Pro. **************************************************** This step is NOT REQUIRED if you place your pro_stds . you must follow the tasks in step 5. choose the one you prefer. 4.pro proe_loadpoint/text/menu_def.
