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.

Project Templates

Each of the Templates included in the Product are different in terms of their design and are better suited for different Implementations.
