My main question here is what methods are people using to ensure that users have the same settings (like drawing template locations)
One method that I am aware of is to use a registry editing script at login. Our IT department is a little weary of this
Another method that we have thought of is to use a batch file to start solidworks instead of using the regular method. In the first command of the batch, we run the registry edit, and in the second command we launch solidworks.
A final method, and least desirable, is to use the copy settings wizard and go to every user to make changes.
Are there any other methods out there that I am missing? We are using Enterprise PDM; I don't know if this has any tools for controlling user settings.
