I ran QuiteRSS portable for a few months until & incl. v0.18.8, and decided today to install the program v0.18.8. After installation I copied the feeds.db and QuiteRSS.ini files over from the portable folder. But the installed version does not pick that up. I am on Win 8.1. Any suggestions??

I wanted to edit the above, but the site does not allow it, even though I am still logged in sad

Anyway, my last portable version was 0.18.7.

Hi,

Hi,

Sorry for the late reply

Sorry for the late reply Sheldon, but the notification does not seem to work.

I stored the files in folder Q:/QuiteRSS-0.18.7, with Q being my VeraCrypt drive. In other words, I stored feeds.db and QuiteRSS.ini in the main QuiteRSS folder. I did the same for previous versions (ever since v0.18.4) and it always worked fine.

Don't know what you mean, but

Don't know what you mean, but here is a copy of the info:

So far it looks ok. Does

So far it looks ok. Does QuiteRSS start at all? What do you find in Q:/QuiteRSS-0.18.7/debug.log?

Sorry, I misunderstood you.

Sorry, I misunderstood you. My problem is with version 0.18.8, NOT with 0.18.7 portable. Version 0.18.8 does start up, and despite having copied the feeds.db & QuiteRSS.ini files from protable v7 to installed v8, nothing shows up in v8.

So here is the info print-out:

Sheldon, any ideas?

Sheldon, any ideas?

I recommend installing

I recommend installing QuiteRSS again without copying the file feeds.db and QuiteRSS.ini and looking up the location information again.
I don't use it but the installed version should hold it's files in the windows user directory.

If I don't copy those 2 files

If I don't copy those 2 files, it means all my settings & feed channels will be lost & will have to be reset, right?

No, you keep the files but

No, you keep the files but you will see the initial location to copy them in the information.

Sorry, but I don't understand

Sorry, but I don't understand your comment.

Anyway, I uninstalled QuireRSS, but in the Program Files (x86) folder the QuiteRSS folder is still present & contains feeds.db and QuiteRSS.ini files.

Should I remove those 2 files before reinstalling QuiteRSS, or should I leave them?

If I leave them should I then replace them with the latest version from my portable QuiteRSS?

You backup your files from

You backup your files from the portable edition, remove everything from the installed and install fresh.
Afterwards you look in the information (see above) for the correct location. This should be your windows user dir.
That's there you copy your backup files to.

 Yes, that works Sheldon,

yes Yes, that works Sheldon, thanks very much for your help & patience. smiley
