Cannot Move My Database - Help!

I changed the location of my storage database, and now the program won’t load. I have the program loaded on one drive, but my database was located in my C: drive, under App Data. I created a new folder on the drive that houses the program, copied all the filed from the C: drive App Data folder, left the “settings.xml” file in that C: drive folder, changed my database location inside of eMClient (under Tools–>Settings–>Storage), and restarted the program. It told me that the database had an error, something about the path cannot be empty or full of while space. Why is this? I need to relocate this database off my C: drive to gain some space. What to do?

Hi,
could you please send the screenshot of the error and “settings.xml” file to kovalcik@emclient.com ?

Hi,
one reason why this error happens may be the error in original version of Microsoft .NET 2.0 . Therefor please try to install .NET 2.0 SP2 from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/cs… and we will see if it was this problem.

Hi again-
Well, I wasn’t able to install the .NET 2.0 SP2, I guess because I have SP3…it told me it was “incompatible”…still looking for an answer to this…it seems that if the programs gives me the option of relocating my database, as ling as I leave the “settings.xml” file on my C: drive, I don’t understand why it’s not working…I have an absolutely huge eMClient database, like close to 3 gigs, so I really need to move it…any other ideas?

You can google for this tool: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_…
download and try to see if will fix the .net2 uninstall issue. Unfortunately MS has officially stopped this tool and no long downloadable from them.

Alternatively try http://support.microsoft.com/kb/908077

And let hope you can get rid of the .NET and .NET2 is the source of your problem.

an’t offer advice, but as a very recent user of eM I just moved my database to another partition an it worked like a dream.

Win 7 HP 64bit.

Thank you eM for an excellent software. Beats Thunderbird for sure, for me.
