Hi Grigorios,

You would need to indicate the new database location in the registry.

Just create a notepad file calling it, say, 'Path.reg' with the following text:


Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\TS Support\MultiCharts\Databases\Portfolio]
"Path"="Drive:\\Path to your databases\\Databases\\FBPORTFOLIO.GDB"

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\TS Support\MultiCharts\Databases\Storage]
"Path"="Driveк:\\Path to your databases\\Databases\\TSSTORAGE.GDB"
"CachePath"="Drive:\\Path to your databases\\Databases\\TSCACHE.GDB"


(indicating your new path in the above text).

Then save the file, close it and open it again. On opening, the path to the databases will change.

If you need any help just contact our customer support.
