Windows 7 Issues

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to just get btsync to start using a basic config file I've created and it doesn't seem to want to launch.  

 

 

Command I'm running:  btsync.exe /config btsync.conf

 

No errors, I just get nothing and the process doesn't run.  Couple of questions:

 

 

Storage_Path Variable in config file:  for windows do we enter full paths like c:\sync\?

 

At the Command Line does the path need to be entered differently?

 

Is there any log-type output which can be used to troubleshoot?

 

 

Thanks

Better yet, rename the file to sync.conf and put it in C:\Users\{YourUser}\AppData\Roaming\BitTorrent Sync.

This way it will be loaded even if the app is started automatically.

 

BTSync.exe Installed Folder is  [C:\Program Files (x86)\BitTorrent Sync\BTSync.exe]

 

sync.conf  to save  [C:\Users\Administrator\AppData\Roaming\BitTorrent Sync\sync.conf]

 

Run [C:\Program Files (x86)\BitTorrent Sync\BTSync.exe]

 

not run BTSync.exe

 

sync.conf writen.....to..

-------------------------------------------

{

    // path to folder where Sync will store its internal data,

    // folder must exist on disk

    "storage_path" : "/Users/Administrator/AppData/Roaming/BitTorrent Sync/.SyncAPI",

    // run Sync in GUI-less mode

    "use_gui" : false,

    "webui" : {

        // IP address and port to access HTTP API

        "listen" : "127.0.0.1:8888",

        // login and password for HTTP basic authentication

        // authentication is optional, but it's recommended to use some

        // secret values unique for each Sync installation

        "login" : "api",

        "password" : "secret",

        // replace xxx with API key received from BitTorrent

        "api_key" : "i have api key no..."

    }

}

-------------------------------------------

 

it's run BTSync.exe /config sync.conf  ....not run

 

why don't run BTSync.exe ?   it's Last version  1.2.72.0

Hi there guys

 

I have been trying to make my API work, and I have followed what you have said here. However, it is not working for me, so

I would like to ask you what I am doing wrong!!!

 

so my "storage path" is  "/Users/<My name>/AppData/Roaming/BitTorrent Sync/BTSync",

 

and my sync.conf is in the "C:\Users\<My name>\AppData\Roaming\BitTorrent Sync" Directory

 

BTSync.exe is in  "C:\Program Files (x86)\BitTorrent Sync"

 

Here is my sync.conf file:

 

{
  "storage_path": "/Users/<My name>/AppData/Roaming/BitTorrent Sync/BTSync",
  "use_gui": false,
  "webui": {
    "listen": "127.0.0.1:8888",
    "login": "A_Login_XXX",
    "password": "A_Password_XXX",
    "api_key": "My_Key"
}

 

I have tried everything, here in this post with no success...

ColombianBootloader,

 

Try putting absolute path in "storage_path", when making so - escape the "\" chars with "\\", so in your case that would be something like "C:\\Users\\<username>\\Appdata\\Roaming..."

 

Let me know if it helps.

Hey mate, I try your suggestion but no success at all. I really would like to know what I am doing wrong....any more ideas or suggestions? As soon as I do BTsync.exe /config sync.conf it does not generate any files inside the storage path folder
