Data Application Folder

Post by tcombs »

We use PartWorks 3.0 which I believe is basically V-Carve Pro for the ShopBot CNC. We have a computer lab for our students. I've dived into the realm of modifying the post processor and would like to have the computers reference one central folder for the post processors. I've been unable to find a way to do this.

Is there a way to change the location of the Data Application Folder?

Thanks,

With the older versions of VCarve/Aspire I used to do that by creating symbolic links to point to a central network location.

I don't have the need to do it anymore so I haven't tried it with the latest versions but I don't see why it shouldn't still work.
