Prinergy: Preps integration overview - FYI

How Preps integration works

When you start Preps through Workshop, either using Create New Imposition or from Tools > Start Imposition Application, Workshop copies the contents of the PrepsPrinergy.cfg.template file from the server to a new copy of the PrepsPrinergy.cfg file inside the Profiles/PrepsPrinergy folder of the client's installation of Preps. Then Preps starts, using the configuration settings found in the copied PrepsPrinergy.cfg profile. If any configuration settings are not specified in the PrepsPrinergy.cfg profile, Preps takes them from the client's copy of Default.cfg.

The PrepsPrinergy.cfg.template file ensures that all users who start Preps through Workshop have the same settings in their Preps work environment. The file is located on the Prinergy server at \AraxiPreps\Profiles\
PrepsPrinergy\ or <SystemDrive>://Prinergy/CreoAraxi/AraxiPreps/Profiles/PrepsPrinergy/.

You can edit the PrepsPrinergy.cfg.template file to modify properties, except for:

Templates, marks, printers and PPD paths, which are hardcoded to point to the Prinergy server location.
Do not add the following lines, because these are automatically determined by Workshop to force Preps to use Prinergy server marks, templates, and printers:
WINPPDPATHS
MACPPDPATHS
MARKTEMPLATEPARENTPATH
PRINTERSPATH
Default bleed settings—see the relevant troubleshooting item.
The client's PrepsPrinergy.cfg file is overwritten every time Preps is started through Workshop.

Location of client Preps configuration files

If the default Workshop version of Preps is used, the client's PrepsPrinergy.cfg file is stored at the following location:

Macintosh:
Applications\Kodak\Prinergy\AraxiPreps\Profiles\PrepsPrinergy
Windows:
Program Files\Kodak\Prinergy\AraxiPreps\Profiles\
PrepsPrinergy
If Prinergy is configured to use a different version of Preps, the file is found in the Preps\Profiles folder.

About duplicate Preps profiles on the Prinergy server

If you see duplicate Preps profiles on the Prinergy server, ignore them. When you install Workshop on the Prinergy server with the Preps options, a Profiles folder is created at C:\Program Files\Kodak\Prinergy\AraxiPreps\. These profiles are used when Preps is started on the server independently of Workshop. These profiles do not affect client computers that are connected to the Prinergy server, and are not used when users start Preps on their own workstations.
