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?
