Whenever you start WSAD, you get a little dialog that asks where your workspace is. Long ago, I checked the little box that says "Use this as my default workspace and never ask again." Anyone know how I might "undo" that? I have a need to use a different workspace temporarily and I'd like to chance my workspace for a little while and then change back later.

Thanks.

Corey,
Locate for the wsappdev.exe which is the dialog allows to choose a workspace.

C:\WSAD512New>wsappdev

My installation folder was 'C:\WSAD512New'

Hope it helped!

I actually never use that prompt for setting the workspace. I selected something as the default once (but I don't even know what it is.)

Instead, I use the -data flag with a path in my shortcut icon. That way I can have different shortcuts pointing to different workspaces.

Follow these steps to reset WSAD to prompt for a workspace on startup:

1. Shut down WSAD.

2. Open an MS-DOS prompt.

3. Navigate to the WSAD install directory and issue the "wsappdev -setworkspace" startup command as shown in the following image. WSAD will start and you are prompted for a workspace location.

You may change your shortcut to include the -workspace option. This will bring up the workspace dialog box on starting WSAD. Ex) "C:\Program Files\IBM\WebSphere Studio\Application Developer\v5.1.2\wsappdev.exe" -workspace
