Changing installation directories

If you install a provider into a non-default directory, Library Manager does not know where the JAR files are located. You must change the location of the JAR files for that provider in Library Manager.

About this task

Changing the library installation directory for a specific provider (default or custom) forces Library Manager to look for the required JAR files in a different location. Forcing Library Manager to look for the required JAR files in a different location can be useful if a provider is installed in a non-default directory or if the provider JAR files are in a different directory for some other reason.

To change the installation directory of a provider, follow these steps:

Procedure

  1. On the left side of the Library Manager window, select the relevant provider-type.
  2. Select the relevant provider from the list of available providers.
  3. Click Browse.
  4. Locate a new root installation directory for the provider JAR files.
  5. Click Select.
  6. Click OK.

    The specified directory becomes the root directory where Library Manager looks for the provider JAR files.
