How do we change the default LumenRT save path from C Drive -> users -> documents -> Bentley etc?
I moved my documents folder to my D Drive (3TB) as my C Drive is a 256GB SSD. Our average LumenRT file is 2-4GB, but LumenRT is still saving to the old scenes folder on the C Drive!
Could not find the option in any of the settings - Please help as moving files is a pain (the recent files list can't find them once moved).
There are two ways to do this:
1. Re-install LumenRT and specify a new documents path
2. Carefully edit the document path line in the LumenRT 2016.reg file located at:
Make sure you only change the path characters and do not delete any special end of line characters:

This folder can be configured during installation of LumenRT (the setting is named "personal collections", see attached image).If you do not want to reinstall LumenRT, you can use a text editor to edit the configuration file located here:"C:\ProgramData\e-onsoftware\LumenRT 2016.reg"I recommend making a backup copy of the file before editing it.You should find a line like this:DocumentPath:C:\Users\XXX\Documents\Bentley\Bentley LumenRT CONNECT EditionPlease change the path so that it points to the desired location.
This worked perfectly, many thanks David!
You can do this by carefully editing the "C:\ProgramData\e-onsoftware\LumenRT 2016.reg" file
Change that path to your folder on drive D:
I am having a similar issue. The program was intstalled by our IT group and defaulted to a different user profile and is causing issues. If the files are moved to a different folder and the "C:\ProgramData\e-onsoftware\LumenRT 2016.reg" file is revised to browse to the new folder, do you lose any file links? In other words, the file was created in OpenROads/OpenBridge does it break the links to ORD/OBM? Using Version 10.16. Still using ORD/OBM and Lumen Rt to make changes to file and want to still be able to do that.
