With binedit, which stores the path information in a file in the program folder, you can copy it to as many locations as you want and have as many projects on the go as you want. None of the installs interferes with the other... which is great. Not so with traxx. Working with more than one version of traxx, or more than one project location, has always been a chore with traxx because it stores the path information in the windows registry and you always have to change the preferences any time you want to switch between projects. And switching back and forth is extremely tedious. Welp, here's the tip.

Export the traxx registry info, save it to a file in a place you won't move it. For example, your project folder. Name it something that reflects the project. Then make a shortcut to it on the desktop.

Then, open traxx and set up the second project. Export that info from the registry, give it a recognizable name, save it to a handy spot, and make a shortcut to it on the desktop.

Now, you're all set. With traxx closed, just double click the reg file for the location you want to work in, and then start traxx. Voila, it's set to the project you want, almost instantly.

Examples.

Code:
REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SoftParts\Traxx\1.0]
"ART folder"="C:\\MyFirstTrack\\ART"
"MODELS folder"="C:\\MyFirstTrack\\MODELS"
"SIT folder"="C:\\MyFirstTrack\\WORLD"


Code:
REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SoftParts\Traxx\1.0]
"ART folder"="C:\\MySecondTrack\\ART"
"MODELS folder"="C:\\MySecondTrack\\MODELS"
"SIT folder"="C:\\MySecondTrack\\WORLD"


Don't know why I didn't think of this before.
