Changing all 3d file paths under sysroot in Process Simulate

Solution Partner Experimenter Solution Partner Experimenter

Hello,
 
Is there any command in Process Simulate 11.1TR3 on eMS that would allow changing all 3D file paths under a sysroot without recreating the libraries?
Something similar to the "resume connection" command from Robcad?
 
I have a structure similar to
Sysroot -> Folder1 -> Folder2 -> Library (.cojt files)
 
and need to modify it to look like this both in PS(navigation tree) and in windows explorer:
Sysroot -> Folder1 -> Folder1.1 -> Folder2 -> Library (.cojt files)
 
The 3d path file of all the .COJTs must be changed from
Sysroot\Folder1\Folder2\Library\example.cojt
to
Sysroot\Folder1\Folder1.1\Folder2\Library\example.cojt.
 
The only way we know how to do this is by manually modifying every 3d file path under the sysroot. Recreating the libraries will result in losing all the work done in the studies up until now, and this is not a possibility.
Is there any other option?
 
Thank you in advance,
 
Ioana

Easiest way to do this is exporting your library as ppd file.

Replace your absolute path like c:\folder1\sysroot\library to #\library. save it.

setting & associating your new sysRoot path in admin-console.

import the updated ppd file again. You will see all of them updated.

I've had the same problem.

Easy way is to export your library to an xml.

Then open the xml in an editor.

Search and replace the faulty path.

Import the xml and all should be changed.
