:) Right click on your icon on your desktop. there should be a box with which you can choose pro's starting working directory. type in the ful path to your directory there and apply. next time you start pro up it should automatically use the chosen directory.

:) Also, in Wildfire 2.0 you have to set the following configuration option in your config.pro file:

file_open_default_folder working_directory

Both appraoches should work.

Thanks for asking the Q&A Board!;-)

Changing the pro's start up working directory on your desktop means that pro-e will search for the config.pro in that specified directory. In my company the config files have their own directory so above solution doesn't solve the problem in that case.

A suggestion would be to use mapkeys. Especially useful if you work in various projects at the same time. Each project would have it's own directory and associated mapkey.
