Frequently Asked Questions

How do I transfer my data from RMP2?

Converting your data is straightforward. Run RMP3, click the spanner icon then 'Import Events'

Now locate the events.xml file from RMP2 and double-click it. This will bring in all your events and filter names. The RMP2 data is no longer needed after this point.

Where is my RMP2 data stored?

Your RMP2 data is usually stored in My Documents\RMP, My Documents\RMP2 or Program Files\RMP2, depending on how long you've been running the software. Inside one of those folders you will find several xml files, the most important of which is events.xml.

If you find more than one set of data files in different locations on your computer, you need to check the modify date to determine which is the most recent.

My RMP2 data isn't called 'events.xml', it's called 'events.dat'

That means you've been running a very old version of RMP2. Before you can import your events into RMP3, you need to update your copy of RMP2 and run it (once). When you run this new version, it will convert your dat files to xml format. Now they can be imported into RMP3.

Where does RMP3 store its data?

The default location is My Documents\RMP3 (or Documents\RMP3 on Windows Vista or Windows 7)

What about the RMP3 settings file, log file and so on?

On Windows XP, C:\Documents and Settings\(Username)\Application Data\Spacejock Software\RMP3

On Vista/Win 7, C:\Users\(Username)\AppData\Roaming\Spacejock Software\RMP3

Can I move the data and/or settings?

You can use the RMP3 options screen to define a new path for your events data.

The only alternative location for the log/settings data is the RMP3 program folder. If you move the file RMP3.ini into the RMP3 program folder, RMP3 will use that location instead. This is useful if you want to run RMP3 from a removable drive, for example.
