With the different ages and installation paths of different libraries with Easy-PC, sometimes it's possible that libraries are not correctly identified. This describes a technique for finding and adding those libraries to the program. This assumes XP as the operating system, but the instructions are similar for other Windows versions.

Open your 'Start' menu, and choose the 'Search' function. (Vista users - if this is not visible, right click on the 'Start' button, choose 'Properties', 'Customise' and enable it.) Choose the 'All files and folders' option. Search for '*.cml' in 'Hard Drive C:' or wherever you have installed Easy-PC if it's a different drive. Under 'Advanced Options' check 'Include Subfolders', then start the search.

When the search has completed, in the results pane click on the separator bar to the right of the 'Folder' title legend, and drag it to the right sufficiently far so that the full path can be seen for each file. Many of these paths will be common. Leave these search results open.

Run Easy-PC, then click on the book icon, or go to [File], [Libraries]. Select the 'Folders' tab. The top pane shows the library paths that Easy-PC knows about. compare these with the ones in the search results. For any missing paths do this:

  • Within Easy-PC click on the [Add] button, then the [Browse] button. Pull down the list at the right of the 'Look In' pane. Use this to browse to the missing folder. With the folder contents shown, click on [Open], or double click on any file. The new path will appear in the top pane, and the extra libraries in the bottom one.
  • Repeat this add folder procedure for each missing folder until they are all present in the top pane. You may now sort these paths using the up and down buttons. The one's at the top of the list are searched first. Remember to close the search utility.

You should now be able to find all your libraries.
