Where is Drive Alias Saved

487 Views, 7 Replies

I have a whack of users on whose computers I need to set up a drive alias.  I'd ather not go to each one, fire up Map, then go through the motions of defining the same alias for everyone?

 

Is there a registry key that gets set?  I could then create a REG file and simply run it on everyone's machines.

 

Or a file that gets changed that I could copy to the users' machines?

 

Something else I can do?

 

Thanks for the help.

Hi,

 

>> Or a file that gets changed that I could copy to the users' machines?

Find the file ACADMAP.INI

For Win7 and Map3D2013 stored in: C:\ProgramData\Autodesk\AutoCAD Map 3D 2013\R19.0

No graphic card, no party, sir.

You'd better call your nearest Autodesk reseller, man.
