Jeff - very cool

I saw something in the help about an optional workspace parameter on -showlocation - are you using that?

Here's the info from the RDi 9.1 help -

*-showlocation* [workspaceName]

Option for displaying the location of the workspace in the window title bar. In release 2.0 this option only worked in conjunction with the -data command line argument. In 3.2, an optional workspace name argument was added that displays the provided name in the window title bar instead of the location of the workspace.


I'm not sure if that makes any sense, but there it is.

Cheers
Vern

Vern - When I doubleclick the icon, because I have the -showlocation there,
it always shows me the workspace location. And I /am/ able to change it if
I so desire, but I /rarely/ do.

Jeff, I saw that - it seems read-only - or intended to set what is seen in
title bar - but maybe you've seen it work differently?

There is. Add -showlocation to the end of the command line. A Window
will
pop up showing the workspace location. You can browse for another.

There is probably a command-line argument - Paul mentioned the
possibility, I just looked into the help text for running Eclipse (this
was
under a section on the workbench). I think you might have the -data
command-line argument, in which you name a workspace and won't get the
prompt - see if that's the case if you are using a shortcut or something
pinned to your task bar or ???

I've had this problem in the past with other versions of RDi / RBD.
What
I've been able to do in the past is change the directory of my workspace
when RDi / RBD first opens and it seemed to remember it from that point
forward. My problem now is RDi / RBD 9.1 won't show me the prompt to
select a workspace and it opens up the one in the roaming folder which
is
the one I don't want. However I can change to the workspace once I'm
into
RDi / RBD, but it's kind of a pain to do that every day when I launch
RDi /
RBD. There's got to be something that is causing it to do this.

What do you use to start RDi/RBD? Is it a shortcut on your desktop or

start menu? Make sure there are no command-line arguments specifying
the
workspace in those shortcuts.

Otherwise I would expect RDi/RBD to prompt for a workspace if you are
absolutely certain that option is in your preferences.

Adding a data point. Windows 7, 32 bit. I normally click a shortcut
on
my desktop and RDi opens my workspace without a prompt. File > Switch

box 'Prompt for workspace on startup' is empty. So the behaviour is as
I
expect.

When I close RDi and re-start it from Start > Programs, RDi opens my
typical workspace without a prompt. Which is also as I expect.
