When you open a model in myproject, FrameWorks Plus reads the config.dat in the project's data folder, which the software copied there from the ..\fwplus\data folder when you created the project. In this activity, we are going to edit the myproject's config.dat file to use project specific grade.dat and attributes.dat files.

  1. Open Windows Explorer.

  2. Copy grade.dat, attributes.dat, and all the .rsc files from ..\fwplus\data to the c:\users\myproject\data folder. The default installation location for FrameWorks Plus is c:\win32app\ingr.

  3. Using Notepad, or another ASCII editor, open c:\users\myproject\data\config.dat.

  4. Edit FW_DATA=$(PROD)DATA\ to read FW_DATA=c:\users\myproject\data\

  5. Save and exit the config.dat file.

Now when you open a model in myproject, FrameWorks Plus reads the grade.dat and attributes.dat files in the ..\myproject\data folder instead of in the ..\fwplus\data folder.

Continue to the next activity.
