[PCB_FORUM] Re: version mismatches

Hi, 
Just to add ,, inside the batch file, it uses batch command " setx.exe,
associate.exe, choice.exe", you need to to download these three files
and place them inside your \window directory, or else this batch will
not work, they can be found under window 2000 free tools download in
microsoft website.

All,

Attached is the batch program that allows one to switch back and forth
between releases. Use this at your own risk.
Rename it to whatever you like with a .bat extension. Place it on your
desktop and double-click to open.
It uses the setx and associate commands which you may have to get from
the
Microsoft resource kit.

It is based on the fact that you have all the paths to the code based on
the
%CDSROOT% in your System PATH environment variable. 
Like %CDSROOT%\tools\pcb\bin;%CDSROOT%\tools\bin;........


Occasionally the menus will get confused using this method but you can
just
reset them to defaults. 
Other folks have done similar methods where they map a drive letter to
the
appropriate release, this way the path and all can remain the same.
Others will also have multiple pcbenv folders, one for each release
(like
pcbenv_142 pcbenv_152) that they will copy to the standard pcbenv based
on
the release desired. This method could be helpful for Patrick's problem.
There are a bunch of ways to tackle the requirement.

Regards,
John Horner

Daniel,

Could you post this batch file for Windows?
I'm interested in it.
Thanks
