To Load a File
Creo Parametric does not automatically read the file at startup. You must load the file if you want Creo Parametric to read it.
1. Click File > Options. The Creo Parametric Options dialog box opens.
2. In the Creo Parametric Options box, type the configuration option search_path_file. For a value, specify either the full path name for the file or the full path name of the directory containing the file.
* For Windows NT, omit the last backslash (\) from the path, or enclose the path in quotation marks, or add a trailing space after the backslash.
3. Click Apply. Creo Parametric reads the file automatically.
When you load a file, Creo Parametric appends the contents of the file to the search path. Creo Parametric reads any paths that you added and ignores any paths that you commented out.
