Installation Folders

During the MTG Studio setup several folders are created and files copied within. Below is a description of the MTG Studio files and folders used:


Open.png C:\Program Files\PalmROOT\MTG Studio x.y.zThis is the main folder where MTG Studio is installed.

By default it is "C:\Program Files\PalmROOT\MTG Studio x.y.z" where "x.y.z" is the version of MTG Studio(for example 1.6.3).

This location of this folder is chosed during the installation process.

Do not modify or delete any file in this folder since this will break the MTG Studio installation.

Vista onwards: C:\Users\Username\AppData\Roaming\PalmROOT\MTG Studio X.Y.Z\Configuration

Pre Vista: C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\PalmROOT\MTG Studio X.Y.Z

This is the folder where MTG Studio settings are stored.

X.Y.Z is the version of MTG Studio you are currently using.

Lets we assume that we are currently logged in Windows with the username Osvaldo and you are using MTG Studio 1.8.3 -
