WebGrab++ config.xml

ver. 2.1

OS Win XP

I need to know how to start.
I installed webgrab ++, then I copied from the site to test this "webgrab ++. Config.xml", I started "WebGrab + Plus.exe." But the EPG did not download.
I would like to ask you for help on how to proceed.
well thank you.

the files in your first pic,did the installer put these there or did you?

i ask because when you run webgrab in pic 2 its looking here..

C:\Documents and Setting\Spravca\Local Settings\Data applicaky\WebGrab+Plus

and it appears there are files there because it found the sitinipack folder,so there should also be a WebGrab++config.xml file there also and this is the one you need to edit.

this is also where you should find the resulting guide.xml

Thank you very much !!!
Yes, I have edited "WebGrab.config.xml" in another folder.
The right one should be here:
"C: \ Documents and Settings \ Spravca \ Local Settings \ Application Data \ WebGrab + Plus"
as you wrote.
There is also a created guide.xml here
Now it should work well.

Can I delete the wrong folder?
Can I copy the correct folder elsewhere or there to stay?
Please tell me where to place the created guide.xml? (the Internet)

Thanks once again!

the installer puts the files in the application data folder by default.

this is also the default location the webgrab looks for the webgrab++config.xml and ini files.

if i remember right the webgrab+plus.exe is placed in the program files/webgrab folder.

so no u cant deleted it,unless u put these here yourself?

i really dont remember exactly where the windows installer puts what as i am a linux user.

so when you double click the webgrab+plus.exe it looks for everything in the application data folder.

in your webgrab++config.xml you can have the file saved anywhere you want by using the full path for the

<filename>xxx</filename>

when u just use <filename>guide.xml</filename> like u have its will be saved in the same place as your webgrab++config.xml

as this is the default location.

yes you can put the files anywhere you want but you will have to manually start webgrab and everytime you update you will have to manually copy and update the files so u can decide if the extra work is worth it to you.

to manually start webgrab you need to do so from the command prompt

1. cd to the webgrab+plus.exe location or use the full path to the file.

2. add the path to your webgrab++config.xml as a argument.

the easiest way is to create a bat file to do this.then you can simply double click on it to run webgrab just like you currently do with the webgrab+plus.exe

so say u wanted all ur files in C:\users\[your user name]\Desktop\WebGrab folder

in terminal or bat file you..

first change directory to your working directory

CD /D C:\users\[your user name]\Desktop\WebGrab

execute webgrab using this custom path as a argument

WebGrab+Plus.exe "C:\users\[your user name]\Desktop\WebGrab"

or without changing to the working directory first..

C:\users\[your user name]\Desktop\WebGrab\WebGrab+Plus.exe "C:\users\[your user name]\Desktop\WebGrab"

in this example [your user name] needs to be replaced by your actual username.
