To Open Visual Studio with a Specific Configuration from a Shortcut

To Open Visual Studio with a Specific Configuration from a Shortcut

On the client computer that is running Visual Studio, open the
Start menu, right-click Visual Studio 2010, and select Properties.

Update the Target field and add the /AxConfig
switch with either the name of the client configuration or the name of the client configuration file as shown in the following

examples:

“C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe” /AxConfig AX-Client-CUS(Configuration name)       

 or

“C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE\devenv.exe” /AxConfig z:\Config\ContosoDev.axc

If you run the Visual Studio executable with a parameter of /?, then it will show you all the available switches you can use.

Note:
When pointing to a configuration file, you can use a Universal Naming Convention (UNC) file location such as \\Server\Configurations\ContosoDev.axc.

Click OK. When you click the Visual Studio shortcut, it opens and Application Explorer points to the specified client configuration. The name of the configuration appears at the top in the root node of Application Explorer.
