    PI ProcessBook: procbook.ini, config item: [startup] References=.  Has anyone used this successfully?

    rfletcPI


      My Company has a legacy PI ProcessBook application that has over 1,500 displays each with special VBA code.   There is a lot of common VBA code, which was put into a library display which is referenced by the 1,500+ displays like a DLL, OCX, or TLB would be referenced.  ( VBA /VBE  menu: Tools > References).

       

      The reference to this library display in each display is hard set to the complete path and file name of the display.   I know how to programmatically change the reference, but need a logical reference so that the displays can be hosted on different servers for different environment without changing the references; just want to change the logical reference.

       

      I see in procbook.ini a configuration item in [startup] section call "References="    I have tried to define known references for a new display, but ProcessBook will not startup.

       

      Has anyone used the "References=" configuration item successfully?   If Yes, what did you have to defined for it to work?

       

      Does anyone have a PI ProcessBook application that uses a Library Display?   If Yes, is the reference hard set or a logical?

       

      Any Ideas other that what has been stated about how to make the reference logical or a link that can be easily changed?

       

      (More Details in attached word document.)

       

      Thank You
