Program and Data Folders Supporting OnePager Express

OnePager Express stores its program and application data in separate folders. The locations of these folders depend upon whether it is a per-user or a per-machine installation. The locations of these folders are not accessible via the Windows Installer GUI, but they are changeable via command-line parameters.

If you are looking for your OnePager documents (e.g. project views, templates, etc.), please read this article instead.

Per-User Installations

For a per-user installation, program and data folders are stored by default under the Windows profile of the account where the installation occurs. However, it is possible to override these default locations during the installation. To change the locations of these two folders, execute the command line below, specifying TARGETDIR for the program folder and CGDATADIR for the data folder:

msiexec /i OPXKG.msi TARGETDIR=c:\myProgs\OPX\ CGDATADIR=c:\myData\OPX\

Per-Machine Installations

For a per-machine installation, the program and data folders are stored by default in the Program Files (or Program Files(x86) for 32-bit OnePager on 64-bit Windows) and Program Data folders respectively. However, it is possible to override these default locations during the installation. To change the locations of these two per-machine folders, execute the command line below, specifying TARGETDIR for the program folder and CGDATADIR for the data folder:

msiexec /i OPXKG.msi TARGETDIR=c:\progs\OPX\ CGDATADIR=c:\data\OPX\

In a per-machine installation, OnePager will also create a user-specific data folder and database file in the Windows profile for each user on the machine. This user-specific data folder is copied from the per-machine folder the first time the user launches OnePager.

OnePager places a value in the Windows Registry to store the path name where the data folder was installed. OnePager uses this path name to find its data:

HKCU\Software\ChronicleGraphics\OnePager\CGDataPath
