How to change configuration files location
« on: August 16, 2012, 12:06:40 PM »
Upon installation, FARR automatically creates a folder in "my documents" called "DonationCoder/FindAndRunRobot" which contains configuration settings files.

Is it possible for me to specify a different location for these config files?  I need FARR to look in the proper place if I move these files.

Yep!
Just edit the configdir.ini file in your Find and Run Robot program file folder, and you can set the directory used for storing configuration files to anything you want.

Sweet, that works.  For anyone else modifying this file remember to restart FARR after modification.  Also, in Windows7, I needed to give myself permission to edit the FARR folder (in folder properties).
