change of procdir

Hello,
In the Met / Cal editor Publish Package uses the directory of procdir (metcal.ini).
Does anyone know how to change this value for procdir?
A manual change in the metcal.ini will be reset the next time the project is opened.
The entry is missing in the dialog MET / Cal configuration.
One possibility would be to convert a dummy project in the old format, which has a valid proc.dir in the desired directory.

Hello Reiner,

Have you considered using Procedure Executable (PXE) files instead? Beginning in MET/CAL version 9.1, PROC.DIR procedures are no longer used. What version are you using?

Any time to attempt to "open" a PROC.DIR style procedure, either from MET/CAL Runtime or MET/CAL Editor, it will set the directory location to the last PROC.DIR file used. If you're using a version before 9.1, there should be another menu option in the Build menu, Publish Selected Procedure to...

You can use that to create a new PROC.DIR if you need to.

Hi Michael,
I also work with Met / Cal 9.1.
My concern is that in Publish Package as the default path of the entry of procdir is used, which I can not change.
Under Met / Cal 8.3 Runtime I can change the entry of procdir with <File> <Change Default Directory ...>.

Hello Reiner,

The first (solution level) or second (project leve) options in the build menu are probably your better choice instead of Publish Package. It will create the PXE/ZIP file in a bin folder inside your project folder.

The removal of PROC.DIR procedures in version 9.1 makes the Publish Package option somewhat antiquated approach to building the procedures.
