Add-In Overview



Remembering since Plex 6.1 the plex.ini file in the installation directory is only a Template ini file and not actually used by the Plex.exe at runtime. 

Currently Stella Tools reads the Template plex.in under program files so when configuring Search Large Properties and Export Large Properties you need to edit your template ini file with your GMFile settings from your personal copy of Plex.ini

Extract from CA Plex 6.1 "Release Notes" pdf
"CA Plex 6.1 is compatible with Windows Vista such that the tool can be used
by a standard user without administrator privileges. As part of these updates,
multi-user support has also been added. This means that each user of CA Plex
on a Windows system will get their own set of configuration files (e.g. plex.ini)
when running the CA Plex development environment.

When you run CA Plex r6.1 for the first time, CA Plex creates your own
personal copy of Plex.ini....This means that the copy of Plex.ini under Program Files is not actually
used when CA Plex is run, except as a template from which your personal copy
of the file is first created."

Where is my INI?

CSIDL_PERSONAL\CA\Plex\6.1. for details of changes made to the locations of various Plex folders to comply with the Windows UAC security model.

Press Tool Bar Add-In and the Tool seemingly does not launch

If the current local model (the instance of Plex which has access to the Code Library Wizard or Add-Ins Model API) is updating a group model then the tool will only open after the group model update, irrespective of from which plex instance it is launched.
