Just released: watchDirectory version 4.0.47
Remember that all 4.x versions of watchDirectory are free for our customers. Just download the latest version from our website and install it "on top" of your current version 4 install. This will keep all your task definitions in tact
How to Change the location of your task directory
A question that is sometimes asked is "how can I change the directory where watchDirectory stores its configuration files" (task definitions). This is the directory that is opened when you press CTRL+9 (or "Tools -> Explore Task Directory") inside the watchDirectory Control Center, normally
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\watchDirectory
When you run watchDirectory the first time, it asks you for your preferred directory, after that, there is no easy way to change it. Obviously, there is the "not so easy way"....
First, stop all watchDirectory tasks:
Press CTRL+9 to open Windows Explorer in your current Task Directory. Create a ZIP of this directory, including all sub-directories. Create the new directory where you want to store your watchDirectory settings, and unzip the file from the previous step here (make sure to retain all directory info).
Now you need to tell watchDirectory to use this new directory:
The same procedure as above can be followed if you want to "copy" your tasks to another computer.
Until next time,
