Community Edition Changing Data Folders

Note this refers to an older version of Community Edition than current.

By default, the PROJECT in a box Commuity Edition files are put in two locations:

  • The system files are in Program Files\PROJECT in a box Community Edition
  • The user's data files are store in the user's profile in folder piabce

To move the user's data files to a alternative location:


In Windows Vista: C:\Users\[USERNAME]\AppData\Local\piabce

In Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\[USERNAME]\Local Settings\Application Data\piabce

2. Move Files

Move all the files to your new location, but leave the 'licence.txt' file.

3. Edit the config file

Navigate to the install folder Program Files\PROJECT in a box Community Edition

Edit the file 'piab.xml' in notepad and set the new locations of the following items you have moved. By default they are referenced to the user's profile, but you can put in alternative, explicit paths.

e.g. <docpath>c:\work\piabce\doc</docpath>
