Environment Variables
You can set the following optional environment variables to change the default PTC Server connection behavior:
APTBURSTLOG — Specifies the location of the log file for document bursting activities.
Set this variable to an absolute path on the file system, and Arbortext Editor will log all document bursting activities in the specified location.
APTOBJCFG — Specifies an alternate path to the burst configuration files.
The specified location must be on a conventional file system, not in a PTC Server.
APTWCCFGFILE — Specifies an alternate path to the userprefs.xml configuration file.
By default, that file is located at Arbortext-path\adapters\com.ptc.prowt.arbortext. The specified location must be on a conventional file system, not in a PTC Server.
APTWCLOGFILE — Enables logging of the interactions between the PTC Server connection and a PTC Server.
Set this variable to a directory path and base file name for the log to enable logging. The path must be for a directory that already exists. Arbortext Editor uses this value to create a log file containing its unique process ID (PID).
The log file name takes the form filename-PID.ext, where the file name and file extension are specified by the environment variable setting, and PID is the process ID for the active Arbortext Editor executable. For example, if you set the variable to the following value:
set APTWCLOGFILE=C:\temp\ptcServer.log
The PTC Server connection could create a log file such as the following:
Each log file is cumulative for its unique process ID. The log contains a lot of information, so you should only use logging when needed. The log file is not deleted when a session ends. If you use logging, you should delete the log files periodically.
