im working on an installation that i need to change files on the cluster manually..
i need to go to the path where the cluster saves the media and overwrite it with different files from outer custom app.
the files will be EXACTLY the same name and type.
the cluster is controlled from an automation system so restarting/reloading the show each time i overwrite the files is not a problem..
the thing is that when i go to - C:\program files\dataton\watchout 5\ i cant see the "shows" folder,
instead this folder is located in - C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Dataton\WATCHOUT 5\Shows..
my first question is: did the path for the "shows" folder was change?
because i know it was in the first path i mentioned all these years..
anyway i tested and overwritten a media file from the 2nd path, reload watchpoint and the "old" file was still shown on screen, which is very weird cause i couldnt find it anywhere on the cluster hard drive.
when i deleted the file completly from the cluster (just to see what happens) and reload the show the cluster reply with this error:
"Error 7 0 "No File Server Specified" but the "old" file was still on screen
so where is this file?? where the cluster takes it from if its not in the "shows" folder?
the production used for uploading the show to the cluster is running win 8.1(yeah i know) if thats make any difference for my case..(the cluster is win 7)
i know it might be a weird workaround but thats the case for that installation..
this method works great "manipulating" the production computer if i restart watchout each time i overwrite the files manually, but thats not helping me cause were not gonna use a production there.
very sorry for the long post
