- I just noticed that my experiment files are now being saved to the C:\Program Files\Hiden Analytical\Massoftpro\ directory. This just started happening yesterday and I don't know why. The files had been saving to the C:\Data Files\Hiden Analytical\Massoft\ directory, which is where I want them. Can I change this directory without having to reinstall the software?
- Have you just created a new desktop icon for MASsoft Pro or a new shortcut?
The "working directory" for MASsoft will be specified by the "Start in" field in the desktop icon / link's Properties.
To change this click on the MASsoft desktop icon using your right mouse button; this will bring up a pop-up menu. Select Properties. You can now change the "Start in" path.
The same applies to the links in the Start Menu, Programs, Hiden Applications - you can right click on these too.
If you start MASSoft by double-click on the .exe file in C:\Program Files\Hiden Analytical\MASsoftPro then C:\Program Files\Hiden Analytical\MASsoftPro will be the current directory.
If you change the directory in the File Save As dialog then that become the current directory until you re-start MASsoft.
On the other hand the File Open dialog remembers the last directory that you used even after a re-start.
