    [GUIDE] - Running TSM Update for two World Of Warcraft Directories (WINDOWS)

    I know this has been asked in iRC a few times but I thought i would post a simple guide how to get the TSM Application to update two separate wow directories.

    first install the Link Shell Extenison from http://schinagl.priv.at/nt/hardlinks...kshellext.html and install it as this makes the whole thing so much easier.

    1. Install TSM Application and the addons in your main wow directory as you would normally
    2. Next install the addons in your second directory.
    3. Go to your main directory and for the addon you use follow the below instructions

    TSM_AuictionDB:
    1. Go to the TSM_AuctionDB addon folder and right click on the file AppData.lua and select "Pick Link Source"
    2. Now go to your second wow directory and find the same folder delete the AppData.lua file located there
    3. right click in the window and select Drop As.. -> Hard Link

    TSM_Wowuction:
    1. Go to the TSM_Wowuction addon folder and right click on the file tsm_wowuction.lua and select "Pick Link Source"
    2. Now go to your second wow directory and find the same folder delete the tsm_wowuction.lua file located there
    3. right click in the window and select Drop As.. -> Hard Link

    this now means that the same file is link to from both of your directories any changes made to the main one will reflect in the second one with no need for you to do anything else.

    Hope this helps.

    Klicks.

    Hopefully it's not frowned upon to bump old threads but I just felt like I needed to say thank you for this.

    Forgive me for posting on an old post. I was wondering something, it says to link the main folder to the secondary one. I assume that means that any changes to main is copied to the secondary, my question is if i make changes to the secondary "account" will those changes be made to the main. In the shell extension words: i pick link source on main account then drop as hardlink into secondary account, I assume that changes made using the main account (link source) would copy over to the secondary account (hardlink), but if i make changes to the second account (hardlink) (say sales data or what not) will those changes be copied from the secondary account (hardlink) to the main account (link source). Basically is the link one-way only from source to hardlink or does it function both ways?

    Thanks for info so far. So i linked the 2 accounts WTF folders, things seemed to work very well - the inventory was smack on all the time, etc. I started setting up my crafters after my harddrive died and with the 2 accounts linked it seems that I can not save my selections as to my professions on the the toon with the profession and I can not share the information with my ah guy either. I really liked the linked wtf folder makes adjust ui much easier since available on both accounts, but i need to be able to craft. Any ideas before I am forced to choose between crafting and having linked wtf folders?
