Multiple Profiles

37 Views, 2 Replies
02-16-2006 07:18 AM
I have a need to create a separate profile for a user who has a laptop, basically on and off the network. It seems the easiest way would be to give them 2 desktop icons referencing different profiles. But there is an intimating string of text in the 'target' property of the icon. Does anyone have a reference or example, I would like a better understanding before I get into it.
Also, any suggestions on keeping duplicate support files up to date. Thanks.

After the target, place /p ***** where **** is your profile name. That will
cause the switch at startup. LDT users are quite use to this trick for
dealing with Map vs. LDT.

And I used offline folders with quite a bit of success in just this
scenario.

Or you can replicate your netork drives:

subst j: c:\j
subst i: c:\i

Cteate a .bat and modify the above and run before starting cad.
