ACESEA Environment Package (Documentation & MDL Tool):
The ACESEA Environment Package, which includes a definitive document on ACESEA Environment (setting MicroStation environment variables for the ACE FrameWorks Utilities - revised Mar 15, 2013) & a MDL tool to manage variable ACE_DEF_PATH – enables changing DEF files on the fly was released with R27311. The ACESEA Environment document is the definitive guide to setting up the ACESEA Environment with PDS (PDSHELL) or FWP w/o PDS (standalone) such that applications will startup and function with the desired set of DEF files for proper project, maintenance will be minimized, projects can be added and/or modified with ease. The MDL application can change the ACESEA environment variable ACE_DEF_PATH (general path to Definition files) to any project selected from a user created data file – thereby switching to the DEF files for the project selected “on the fly”.
