I recently installed BRL-CAD for windows on my XP
machine. After setting up the windows and variables
how I would like them (face plate on, z clipping off,
etc) I clicked on Create/Update .mgedrc. The file is
created and appears to be correct but after closing
mged and then attempting to open a project by double-
clicking the .g file BRL-CAD opens up with the
default window size and variables. If I add in a line
at the beginning of the .mgedrc file it is read
properly - even if it is the exact same line as
below. A coworker had the same problem on 2 machines -
one XP and one 2000.
WORK AROUND - another coworker who had installed BRL-
CAD for windows when it was first released was able
to successfully create a working .mgedrc. Cutting and
pasting his .mgedrc file into my .mgedrc file worked.
After that I was able to adjust windows and variables
and successfully update the .mgedrc file using the
Create/Update .mgedrc option.
