  • Loosing search path settings

    Every now and again when we shut down the computer for our CMM and reboot we loose our search path settings. not a huge deal I have been able to rest them. Tonight when it happened PC-DMIS can not see the network drives but when I open on File Explorer they are there. From what I have read tonight PC-DMIS doesn't like networks. I don't have full Admin rights, so I am limited to what I can do tonight, that and I have an hour to go. So my question is why do we loose the search path settings from time to time when we re-boot? Windows 10 64 bit and running PC-DMIS 2018 R1

    We have same issues with our offline keys in DMIS 2016. Also have same issues with it in 2018 R2 offline keys. Our Online keys seem to be fine. A hexagon application guy temporary fixed mine then my computer did an update and changed back. Only happens when I shut down my computer. They can fix it, but I can’t remember how or the reason. It was awhile ago. I just got used to it and leave my computer on all week now.

      Happens here too, have no clue what causes it. If it is permissions, then why would it work sporadically?

        It could be that your network is 'restoring' the user profile when you log in, but never saves your changes. It's a job for IT...

          That same thing happens to me, I was told that it was our anti-virus software resetting it. Only the Default Measurement Routine gets reset though, the other ones don't change... And all of our directories are stored on our network

              Funny thing is, I have the probe files located in another folder on the exact same drive, mapped to another device name which never gets "lost". Only the mapped folder with the part programs...

              EDIT: Made the change suggested by VinniUSMC above. Crossing fingers.
