WEAP file system Spyros Michas smichas <a href="mailto:smichas@hydroex.gr">smichas@hydroex.gr</a>Hello,
Does anyone know where I can learn more about the WEAP file system?
I've spotted the areas as folders in the "Program Files" folder of my computer.

Is it possible to define a shared folder in my network as a repository for the areas?

Running WEAP on a network Jack Sieber jsieber <a href="mailto:jsieber@tellus.org">jsieber@tellus.org</a>When you install WEAP, you can decide what folder to install it in. The default location is C:\Program Files\WEAP21, but you can install it anywhere you want, including a folder on a network drive. Once WEAP has been installed, each WEAP "Area" will be placed in its own subfolder under the main WEAP21 folder.

NOTE: although WEAP can be installed on a network drive, WEAP itself is NOT a multi-user system. Therefore, only one person at a time can run each instance of WEAP (a copy of WEAP installed to a particular folder)--otherwise, the data files could become damaged.

Running WEAP on a network Spyros Michas smichas <a href="mailto:smichas@hydroex.gr">smichas@hydroex.gr</a>Thanks for your answer Jack.

I suppose this means that I cannot have just the areas and related data somewhere else on the network in order to be shared, because they need to be under the installation folder of the software.

WEAP file system Mehdi Mirzaee MMirzaee <a href="mailto:M.Mirzaee@wri.ac.ir">M.Mirzaee@wri.ac.ir</a>It's not problem if you want to install WEAP to the other folder. I don't remember that how it was installed, but in my Computer I don't like to install everything on program files. Now I use it from another folder.
All of your Area will be made on WEAP folder on your computer. And interesting thing is if you uninstall WEAP or install a newer version all of your projects area will be remain and after first Running WEAP, it automatically changes. Ofcourse for the getting first result, it may take more time.

Dear Jhennifer,

Have you changed computers? Were you getting data from .csv files? It's possible that the pathways plugged into WEAP for those .csv files no longer exist.

When using .csv files within WEAP, it's always best to save the files in the folder for that WEAP area. That way, they are always tied to the model.
