GetFolderPath() accessing a workgroup folder

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

We're utilizing a a server-side workgroup folder for all plug-ins, libraries etc. I have a few custom plug-ins that grab symbols from library files and bring them into the local file using CopySymbol().

For obvious reasons, I need to use GetFolderPath to do this, however it doesn't seem to support workgroup folders. Anyone know a workaround?

This seems to be a very old thread 🙂 I did not found something newer. There seems to be a way to read plist on mac (not yet tried registry on win). Is there a more direct way?


import plistlib

file = 'Users/username/Library/Preferences/net.nemetschek.vectorworks.2019.plist'

pl = {}
with open(file, 'rb') as fp:
    pl = plistlib.load(fp)

vs.AlrtDialog(str(pl.get("NNA Workgroup Folders")))
