Kinetis Design Studio creates "Processor Expert" and "MyComponents" folders in my home folder

Dear all,

I run OpenSuse Tumbleweed on my computer.

I do not want to clutter my home folder with "Processor Expert" and "MyComponents" folders. These folders are recreated every time I start KDS. I tried to look for some path variable that I could change to move these folders to another location and failed. Does anybody have a solution for this?

Thank you.

What you can try is to set the environment variable "ALLUSERSPROFILE" to existing folder where the user has write access, e.g. something like this:

mkdir /opt/expertwritablearea
export ALLUSERSPROFILE=/opt/expertwritablearea
./kinetis-design-studio‍‍‍

I did not test but I expect it will work.

Regards,

Libor

I tried to export 'ALLUSERPROFILE' and 'home_ProcessorExpert_loc' to another folder. It doesn't work.

Hello,

you have a typo - missing "S" after word USER. Correct version is below:

export ALLUSERPROFILE=/tmp/pex
./kinetis-design-studio

I just verified it works with KDS 3.2.0. The directory in the env. variable is automatically created (if pointed to the place where the user has the appropriate rights.

It is also visible in the Processor Expert console:

Hope it helps,

There is a setting here:

At least for the 'MyComponents'.

I hope this helps,

Hi Erich,

Thanks. Unfortunately, that doesn't help. It isn't possible to edit the path.
