DriveWorks Pro 17: New Project Wizard [send feedback...]

New Project Wizard

The new project wizard allows the creation of a project within a group.

The following options exist within the wizard:

  • New DriveWorks Project
  • Product Template
  • Import DriveWorks Solo Project
  • Import DriveWorksXpress Project

provides support for creating new blank projects or new projects from existing DriveWorksXpress or DriveWorks Solo projects.

Best Practices

It is recommended that you create all your projects in a common directory structure, for example:

C:\DriveWorks\MyProjects\MyProject1

C:\DriveWorks\MyProjects\MyProject2

C:\DriveWorks\MyProjects\MyProject3

If you are creating projects and using them with an Individual group, it is recommended that you create the directories for each project in the same location as the group.

New DriveWorks Project

To create a new DriveWorks Project:

  1. Select the New DriveWorks Project and click Next.
  2. Browse to an empty folder to create the project in by clicking the Browse button at the end of the Location field and click OK.
  3. By default the Name field will be populated with the same name as the selected directory.

    This can be accepted as the Project Name or a new name entered.

    If a project exists with the same name, or the entered name is invalid, an appropriate message is displayed under the Name field.
  4. Click Finish.

Product Template

Creates a new Project based on a template that can be easily modified.

Ideally used with the Group Template (Contract and Project) shipped with DriveWorks Pro.

Includes responsive forms.

Create a new project based on the Product Template

From the New Project Wizard:

  1. Select the Product Template and click Next.
  2. Browse to a location the template will be installed by clicking the Browse button at the end of the Location field and click OK.
    The directory must be empty to extract the template.

    An appropriate message is displayed under the Location field if the template cannot be extracted to the selected location.

  3. By default the Name field will be populated with the same name as the selected directory.

    This can be accepted as the Project Name or a new name entered.

    If a project exists with the same name, or the entered name is invalid, an appropriate message is displayed under the Name field.
  4. Click Next to extract the template.
  5. Click Finish once the template has been extracted.
