    PDM Professional add-in administrative settings persistence

    Brandon Plubell

      How can I (or what is the best) way to store "administrator level" settings for a PDM Professional/EPDM add-in that I am writing? By "administrator level", I mean something like the name of a variable to show in a custom window (later shown to all user). An administrator level setting can be changed per vault, but is constant for all users of a particular vault.

       

      I can find nothing (in the forums and on Google) regarding how to "save" administrator level settings for a PDM Professional/EPDM add-in. Some add-ins from SolidWorks (such as a Network Analyzer) have some mechanism for storing administrator level settings, but I have no idea what it is. The only thing I could think of is using a hardcoded external storage (file or database), but that seems overly complicated and not very robust.

       

      Thanks,

      Brandon
