    EPDM Custom Print Task Misbehaves Unless an Explorer Window is Open

    Greg Thomson

      I've written a custom EPDM Task that generates Inventor DXFs.  The Task seems to work flawlessly, but intermittently wouldn't print to its target folder.

       

      After exhaustive testing, I discovered its me continually deleting the target folder from Workstation A (me), and then asking Workstation B (task computer) to regenerate the DXFs into the target folder.  Somehow the workstation B EPDM View is not in sync with Workstation A's view and fails when an attempt is made to write/create a directory just deleted? (or something).  What's really weird, is if I open an Explorer Window on the parent directory of Workstation B and just leave it open, it somehow does some sort of refresh to allow my DXFs to get continuously generated no matter how often I remotely delete the folder and regenerate from Workstation A.

       

      Does anyone know what's going on?  Is there some sort of API call I could make to have the Task computer resync or update its EPDM View before performing tasks?

       

      Greg,
