Changed Computer User Name

Recommended Posts

I moved TMG to a new computer, and cannot figure out how to redirect TMG so that it can find folders for Exhibits, Backups, etc.  The problem is that my User Name for the new computer is JohnK, while it was John for the previous computer, and JMK for one before that.  TMG keeps looking for files under the old user names.  I did run Validate File Integrity, and during that process inserted the correct link to the Exhibits file - but while TMG said it found a number of missing exhibits, it still tells me each time the program starts that it cannot find an exhibit file under the user name John.

I am sure there is a simple way to give TMG the correct path, but I have not been able to find it and would appreciate anyone’s help.

The default project path is under...

File / Preferences / Program Options / General

The default paths for the current project are under...

File / Preferences / Current Project Options / Advanced

The exhibit paths are stored in the Exhibits table of the project. 

The external exhibits feature of File / Maintenance / Validate File Integrity can be used to update the exhibit paths to a new path (or paths if you have an exhibit tree).
