Hello,

 

The list of projects is stored in the profile.  The value is stored in the MRULIST in Profile.aws in the C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Autodesk\AutoCAD Plant 3D 2011\R18.1\enu\Support\Profiles\Unnamed Profile\ (Vista/Win7). 

 

With AP3D closed, you can edit the AWS file and remove the deleted projects in notepad.   Unfortunately I have not had success discovering a more direct way to remove the project name other than editing the AWS file, which carries risks similar to editing the registry.

 

I would expect that normal MRU behavior, where attempting to pick something that is not available would remove it from the MRU, but this does not seem to be happening.    I'll post again if I can discover a more direct way.

thanks so much for your replay.

but it is incredible to have to delete from a log file as show on the image.
First it is not legible or are hard to find in the archive. AWS corresponding lines for the projects deleted.
And second, there is great risk, if you think you've found the line for the poryecto deleted, you can go wrong and destroy the system.
A great little thing they have to improve.

First, thanks for your post, I have recorded this request.

 

I see similar behavior for the DWG MRU list (registry).  These MRU lists are local per-user, and short of recreating the user profile, there is no simple way to reset them.

I asked this question almost a year ago and it is still an issue. Is Autodesk ever going to fix this problems ?
