Article ID: 216854 - View products that this article applies to.
This article was previously published under Q216854
Once you run Developer Studio with the /USEENV switch it always uses the environment specified in the Control Panel System applet. Developer Studio does not default back to using the settings specified in the Directories tab under Options and off of the Tools menu. This happens even if you later run Developer Studio without the /USEENV switch.
Developer Studio should use the environment specified in the Directories tab under Options and off of the Tools menu when the /USEENV switch is not specified.
