Installation-Directory for Databases and Cache (QM)

Postby piranhaxp » 05 Jan 2009

Dear Support,

I would like to know how to change the directory to install the databases from the Quotemanger and the Cache directory. I've never seen this choice through the installation process ? Can I chnage it after the installation via changing registry or how can I change the directory (Multicharts and OwnData) ?

Would be nice to hear from you immediately .....

Regards.

Mike

Hi Mike,

You can move your databases to whatever location you choose – as long as it is on a local drive. Network drives are not allowed.

Also, apart from moving the databases, you will need to change paths for the following directories in your registry.

----------------------------------------------
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\TS Support\MultiCharts\Databases\Portfolio
A key called Path will need to be changed.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\TS Support\MultiCharts\Databases\Storage
CachePath and Path will need to be changed.
-------------------------------------------------

Important: make sure that MultiCharts and all its modules are closed when you make changes to the database location and in the registry keys.

P.S. If an issue requires immediate attention, please send it to support@tssupport.com, come to our LiveChat, or call us at 888 817 6385. Requests received via e-mail, LiveChat, or on the phone have a higher priority than those posted on the forum, for the forum has been designed rather as a place for discussion than addressing urgent issues.

Best regards.
