Moving the defaul...
Topic: Moving the default 'My Documents' folder
Obviously, 30Gb isn't a lot for a system drive but it installed with 11Gb to spare and I intended to move all the %USER% folders on to the HDD anyway - which I did as soon as the OS finished installing/updating/playing with itself.
Once moved from C:\%USER%\Documents to D:\Documents (using the inbuilt windows move command (right click on my documents, choose location tab and select move)), I then set about installing VDJ and other software.
I copied my VDJ folder from the old machine to the new location and VDJ not only didn't bother looking for it, but it created a new folder in C:\%USER%\Documents and sat there crying that it couldn't run because the default skin wasn't found.
That ended up longer than I thought :(
Anyway, been looking everywhere and can't find the place to tell VDJ where to find the default folder which is now on D:\
Any help - even a slap and finger pointing me in the direction of where the answer is and I just couldn't find it - would be greatfully received.
Cheers in advance

there should be a key named homeFolder.
There is also a "runFolder" if you want to move your Installation to D:\Programs or so.
But keep in mind, that all plugins might try to write to C:\Documents folder when trying to install them.

Perhaps something we could mention to atomix for a future update?
I know it must be rare to do this but a simple option for changing file locations can't be hard.
Cheers again mate

I am upgrading from Virtual DJ 7 to Version 8 and would like to run the 2 side by side but without any interaction or shared files/folders. in the Registry the key for "homefolder" appears to be shared for all versions of the software. Is there any way of having different home folders for each version of the software or do I need to create a new user on my PC to install into.

How about during VDJ installation, select CUSTOM install (this should let you select any HD/Folder you want). ?
