Relocating Program Directory

Post#1 » Mon Dec 18, 2017 2:14 am

I inadvertently, while rushing around to get WMC working, installed the EPG123 app in the drive that I use for storing installations files instead of the OS drive. How can the program's executable be moved? I tried searching this forum, searching my registry, and looking in the cfg file, but no luck. I've tried running the install from the C: drive where I want this moved but no luck with that, probably need to uninstall first but don't know how to do that as the app is not listed in Programs and Features, though to be honest I can't say I want to go through a complete clean reinstall right now. I'll do it though if that's what it takes. Thanks in advance for any information. BTW I love this app and guide data, so much better than OEM, have been using it for a few months now.

If you used the install originally, then it should be listed in the Programs and Features. You will need to uninstall first in order to install to a different location. Copy/Move the epg123.cfg file into the new location, delete your old scheduled task and create a new one. You'll be good to go. You should also move over your /logos folder and can optionally move over your /cache folder as well.

If you did not use the install originally and just extracted the contents of the portable zip file, you just need to delete the old scheduled task, move the epg123 folder to new location, and create a new task.
