RTE Capture 1.59: Using the 'My Documents' folder

Permalink 01/10/11 01:19, by jonas, Categories: RTE, News

With the latest RTE Capture version, support for the 'My Documents' folder was added.
For more details about that folder read the previous blog entry:
New to ArmA 2 (1.05): Addons in 'My Documents'

It is recommended to do the change and move your @RTE folder to My Documents\ArmA 2\@RTE. To do this, simple adjust the Location of the RTE for ArmA II in the settings dialogue of RTE Capture.
It should move the files automatically.

Why this change?
The major reason is the UAC of Windows 7 and Vista. It prevents programs to write inside program folder. But mods are stored within the program folder. So every change to the mods requires admin rights.
RTE Capture itself doesn't require admin rights, but the update progress will fail if no admin rights are given due to UAC.
To solve this issue, the movement of the mod folder(s) is an elegant way.

It's time for a change!
