Location of .maptool folder

Post by thehiggins »

Is there any way to change the location of the .maptool folder to not be <C:\Users\(username)> ?

I have so many folders in there from all my applications. (i.e., .chartool, .inittool, .gimp-2.6, etc.) Does anyone know if they can be changed/moved?

Running Vista, btw.

Nope.

Note that those directories are normally hidden by the OS so you could just set the view back to not showing hidden directories.

In my case the folders are located in D:\<username>, where C: is my systemdrive.

I do not want them there, but this does proof that it is changable.

I adjusted the batch file that came with the program to read as follows:

Code: Select all

set VERS=1.3.b89
"%programfiles(x86)%\Java\jre7\bin\javaw.exe" -DMAPTOOL_DATADIR=".\Data" -Xmx512M -Xss512K -jar maptool-%VERS%.jar run


The file originally read:

Code: Select all

VERS=1.3.b89
javaw -Xmx512M -Xss512K -jar maptool-%VERS%.jar run


I just left the parts of the code that I did not entirely understand untouched.
