RadioBOSS - Config Settings Folders and Abbreviations

Hello Dmitry,

Can you tell me if the paths for the config settings and reports can be abbreviated as shown below ?

I accidentally uninstalled RadioBOSS on my test PC and when I reinstalled it all of my settings stayed in the config section of the previous installation - so I had to copy them across to the new config section.  When I did that the full paths of the old installation were in the > Settings > Options window.

I thought it would be easier for me to use the abbreviated path in the future so that those sections did not need to be edited manually.


Examples of old and new config setting folder paths:

OLD PATH FOLDER:  C:\Users\USER\AppData\Roaming\djsoft.net\RadioBOSS_626636649\

NEW PATH FOLDER:  C:\Users\USER\AppData\Roaming\djsoft.net\RadioBOSS_439908003\


C:\Users\USER\AppData\Roaming\djsoft.net\RadioBOSS_439908003\Database

\Database

C:\Users\USER\AppData\Roaming\djsoft.net\RadioBOSS_439908003\VoiceTracks

\VoiceTracks

C:\Users\USER\AppData\Roaming\djsoft.net\RadioBOSS_439908003\Report

\Report

C:\Users\USER\AppData\Roaming\djsoft.net\RadioBOSS_439908003\nowplaying.txt

\nowplaying.txt

C:\Users\USER\AppData\Roaming\djsoft.net\RadioBOSS_439908003\artwork.png

Does that make sense ?


Thanks,  Jamie C.

Yes, RadioBOSS uses abbreviated paths by default, but this was added only in RadioBOSS 5.2 if I'm correct. So in all the settings the path is specified as \Database\, not full path. If your settings were first created with an older version, then those use the full paths. You can change full paths to abbreviated ones.

Hmmm. Abreviated path doesn't work for custom path...
For example:
E:\RadioCCN\Library
E:\RadioCCN\VoiceTrack
