Simply list the folders to be searched in a search.pro (full paths recommended). Look at help. Pretty sure there's an example and some caveats listed (first line can't be blank, etc.?)

I prefer to put search path statements in project directory config.pro files, myself. When Pro/E is launched from that directory the config.pro is read. Don't need to mess with changing search_path_file statements.

Pro/E will only search the listed directory, no sub dirs.

If you want to make a searchpath file listing a certain folder and all it's subfolders, there is an easy way to do this in windows (XP).

Go to DOS and place yourself in that 'certain folder' and type in the folowing:

dir *. /s /b >>search.pro

In 'that certain folder' you now have a search.pro file. Place it where you like and then point to it using config.pro option "search_path_file" and you are done.

That's a good idea if there are a lot of 'em.

Is that the syntax that would be used in XP or is it

dir /s /b /a:d (and maybe /-p so it doesn't hang waiting for a key punch)?

(You can also cut-n-paste out of Explorer's address bar, fwiw.)
