Hi!
I think it will be helpful if somebody can specify with examples the path of a general TW2 installed on a single computer in a local network.
Like: C:/Projects.....and so on.
And the same description for the library
I think it is a little bit confused, at list to me.
Thanks

Here is an example.
This is what you see if you install it to the default location.

Than you, but can the Bim server folder be in another location on the same computer? I mean can the folder be found under the graphisoft folder? Or is it in a seperate archiCAD folder?
Thanks

Yes, you can set the Projects folder to any location you want.
Her I moved the TW Project folder to C:\Program Files\Graphisoft.
The library folder cannot be moved.

No the location of the Default Library Folder cannot be changed.
This is why there is no Browse button beside it.
I don't know why they did it like that but that's the way it is.

Actually, the library can be placed elsewhere during the installation of the BIM Server - you are asked for locations at that time. Once it is installed, it can possibly be moved but only by editing the registry or preference file as I described in a different thread - a method not endorsed by Graphisoft.

Cheers,
Karl
