Relocating the AMP Datastore on Windows
If you have a new AMP installation and have not yet created any instances (or do not care if they are erased) - it is easier to re-run the AMP installer and pick a new datastore location. If you need to relocate existing instances then the following applies.
It may be necessary sometimes to relocate the AMP instance datastore. On Windows systems there's a few steps that are required to do this in order to keep all of the instances running.
- Make sure that all AMP instances are stopped, and that the instance manager is not running.
- Move the datastore directory to its desired location.
- Change the ownership if applicable. AMP instances may not function correctly if the directory structure is owned by
Administrator- If you're running AMP instances as services it should be owned by
Instances.jsonwith a text editor (such as Notepad++) and change the paths for the instances to reflect the new directories. Note that the use of double-slashes for paths is required as it is a JSON document.
- Using Regedit, navigate to the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/CubeCoders/AMP/InstanceManagerand find the
InstanceStorevalue - and update it to reflect the new datastore location.
