How do you change where developer studio looks for ClassWizard?  I want to keep my own local version of .clw so that I can include my local work and not have coworkers removing my classes when they don't find the files...

I don't quite understand the problem.

Each project uses its own .clw file for the class wizard.

Can you explain what is happening?

Sorry.  This is a team project and as we work on particular files we copy them from the shared area to our own workspace, so we are compiling both our own and shared files at the same time.  The resources are located in the shared area, not our own, somehow... and the classwizard too.  So I want to have my own local classwizard instead of the shared one.

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

In your "visual studio\msdev98\common\template directory". Each .awx file represents a wizard.

I guess you mean the visual studio\common\msdev98\template directory, since there exists no visual studio\msdev98\common\template directory.  But there are no .awx files there.  Can you clarify what needs to be done?

The wizards come with VC do not have a separate .awx file, I think. But if you write a custom wizard, if should locates in that directory.

I do not want to create a custom wizard, I just want to relocate the already existing classwizard file, or copy it exactly but in a different location.

We encountered the same problem, but the solution is quite simple:

Each team member does have its own Workspace file (.dsw) and project files (*.dsp). This automatically results in everyones own .clw-File. Just not overwrite the dsw/dsp/clw-Files on synchronisation. The only drwaback is that compiler settings and additional files in the projects must be maintained by each team member. If you use exactly the same directory structure and same drives or work with realtive path-names the .dsp-Files could also be synchronized...

Bye,

Bernd

So when you created your own workspace and project, it automatically created a classwizard in your own area?  This makes perfect sense, what else would it do?  But for some reason our .clw ended up shared even though we have our own project and workspaces.  I think perhaps we copied the original project way back when, even though our process now calls for creating your own.  I will simply create a new one from scratch!

Thank you!
