si createproject creates a new, empty project on the Windchill RV&S Server in a specified directory. For example,
si createproject c:/Aurora_Program/bin/Libra/project.pj
This command takes the universal options available to all si commands, as well as some general options. See the options reference page for descriptions.
controls whether to open the project view after this new project is registered on the server. If --noopenView is used, the project view does not open.
project location
identifies a location on the Windchill RV&S Server for the new project. Regardless of your operating system, all paths are specified here using forward slashes (/), and are server absolute paths. You must also specify the name of the project file as part of the location; typically this is project.pj.
By convention, you should name your new project file with a suffix of .pj. The project file is a virtual file, and it does not appear in the file system for Sandboxes.
Intermediate directories on the Windchill RV&S Server are created for you. Remember, however, that server-side restrictions may exist controlling where you are permitted to locate any projects. Contact your system administrator for permitted locations.
See the diagnostics reference page for possible exit status values.
