How to use relative path for Database location of Everything

Post by zhaohs » Wed Jun 17, 2009 2:50 am

Dear David,

I use the following location to restore the Database of Everything:

F:\zhaohs\etc\www.voidtools.com\everything

i.e., the following one in the Everything.ini:

db_location=F:\zhaohs\etc\www.voidtools.com\everything

In my case, the main program, i.e., Everything-1.2.1.371.exe, is located at:

F:\zhaohs\etc\www.voidtools.com\Everything-1.2.1.371\Everything-1.2.1.371.exe

Now, I want to use relative path for Database location of Everything, i.e., the following one in the Everything.ini:

db_location=..\everything

But, I find that the Everything will change the above relative path to the absoulte one automatically. Could you please give me some more hints on this issue?

Thanks in advance.

Relative paths will not work.

You will need to use absolute paths.

I have added: support relative paths to my "Things to do" list.
