IProcessAnalyst.PrimaryPath [Property][Get/Set]

Specifies the primary location for saving and loading Process Analyst views.

Defined As

Execution Result

If the property get/set succeeds, the return value will be Success. If the return variable is bad, the return value will be InvalidArgument.


The primary and secondary path properties together provide a file redundancy option for large systems that need to store Process Analyst Views in a shared location. Whenever a load operation occurs from either of these locations, the loaded file will be synchronized with each location, such that the latest version of the file appears in both locations.
