    HOW TO FIND THE MULTI-EDIT CONFIG DIRECTORY:

    It’s a good idea to periodically backup your Multi-Edit Config directory, as this is where all your personal customizations are stored.

    A simple way to determine where the Multi-Edit Config directory is:

    1. Open Multi-Edit

    2. Go to MACRO -> RUN…

    3. In the resulting RUN MACRO dialog, enter the command "SWITWIN /SYSTEM=2" (without the quotes, uppercase, with one space before the slash)

    4. In the resulting WINDOW LIST dialog, look for Meconfig.db and Wcmdmap.db . They are usually listed at the top. To the right is the directory where each file is located. This is the Multi-Edit Config directory.

    Before version ME2006 10.04, the Config directory is usually located at
    [code:1c6qh25s]C:\Program Files\Multi-Edit 2006\Config\[/code:1c6qh25s]

    For ME2006 10.04, the Config directory is usually located in a hidden folder:

    For Windows XP and earlier:
    [code:1c6qh25s]C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Multi Edit Software\Multi-Edit\10\Config\[/code:1c6qh25s]

    For Windows Vista:
    [code:1c6qh25s]C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Multi Edit Software\Multi-Edit\10\Config\[/code:1c6qh25s]

    For ME2006 10.05, the Config directory is usually located in a hidden folder:

    For Windows XP and earlier:
    [code:1c6qh25s]C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\Multi Edit Software\Multi-Edit\10\Config.05\[/code:1c6qh25s]

    For Windows Vista:
    [code:1c6qh25s]C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\Multi Edit Software\Multi-Edit\10\Config.05\[/code:1c6qh25s]

    Note that these are hidden folders. To view:
    1. Open Windows Explorer
    2. TOOLS -> FOLDER OPTIONS
    3. Select the VIEW tab
    4. Under ‘Advanced settings:’, select "Show hidden files and folders"
    (Later you may set this back to "Do not show hidden files and folders")

    (Note: The location of the Multi-Edit Config directory can be changed by
    creating a file named Mew32.ini in the C:\Program Files\Multi-Edit 2006\ directory.
    For example, in 10.05 the Mew32.ini file contains the following lines:

    [code:1c6qh25s][config]
    ; Path for config files
    ;path=\\Apache\f\Tools\Config\

    ; Config directory modifier
    ;id=-Dev
    ;id=-test
    id=.05
    [/code:1c6qh25s]
    All lines starting with a ; are commented out. The last line says to name
    the Config directory Config.05 instead of just Config.)
