moving pil.db to a new machine with a different file path than the original box

Is it possible to edit the file path on the new machine in PIL 1.16.2? Or, can this only be done using my db editor? Thanks!


Hi Erv,

You can copy the database to a location on another machine. You can start PlayIt Live with the /CustomApplicationDataPath="C:\YourFolder" parameter to point the application data at another folder.


Hi, Jason,

All I need to do is change "C:\Users\Some Name\Music\" to "E:\Music\" 

What switches/args would that cmd be?



In other words, I only need to edit the tracks path, not the path to the PIL application.

Oh I see. PlayIt Live has a Missing File Analysis tool under Tools where you can re-map the file path of missing tracks to a new location.
