Hi,
My apologies if this is something that has been posted previously (search didn't get me an answer to my question).

What I want to do seems simple enough, but I haven't been able to make it work that way I'd like:

* The source code files are in one sub-tree of the file system (under SVN control).
* I want the SE project and work place files in another branch as we don't all use SE (and I don't want to pollute the SVN directories).

I create a new project and workplace and tell SE to place the files where I want them.
I can't get SE to default to any other directory when working with files aother than this, even If I assign the project's working directory to where the source files are located SE always defaults to the directory where the  .vpj and .vpw files are.

(We're using a system of make files to build so no Visual studio files etc. to piggyback on.)

I find this really annoying.

What am I missing?

Cheers,
- Carl

If setting the project's working directory isn't working for you, you can try something like this in your "Open" commands on the project properties dialog:
Code: [Select]
concur_command d:
concur_command cd \project
I use it (among other open commands to set up my workspace with our custom version control/build system) and it seems to work well.

Evan,
That helps some, thanks. It doesn't work for the "add files to project" dialogue, but at lest it resets the default file|open folder to the source folder.
