Viz Engine Folders

This section details the location of the Viz Engine default installation and data folders.

Installation Folders

The default installation folder is C:\Program Files\Vizrt\VizEngine\.

In this Administrator Guide, any reference to the Viz Engine installation folder, for example C:\Program Files\Vizrt\VizEngine, is replaced with the text <viz install folder>.

Note: Viz Config files that already exist from a previous installation are automatically copied on install time if the installation folder did not change. If Viz Engine is installed in a different installation folder then Viz Config files must be manually copied from the old installation folder to <viz data folder>.

Data Folders

Files which are created or modified by Viz Engine are located at %ProgramData%\Vizrt\VizEngine, which usually resolves to C:\ProgramData\Vizrt\VizEngine. This folder is referenced as <viz data folder> throughout this Administrator Guide, and contains, for example:

  • Viz Config files

  • Script plug-ins

  • Crash dump files

Temporary files are located at: %TMP%\Vizrt\VizEngine, which usually resolves to C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Local\Temp\Vizrt\VizEngine. This folder is referenced as <viz temp folder> throughout this User Guide.

Script Plug-ins are located in the <viz data folder>\ScriptPlugins subfolder.

Note: Script Plug-in files that already exist from a previous installation are automatically copied on install time if the installation folder did not change. If Viz Engine is installed in a different installation folder then Script Plug-in files must be manually copied from the old installation folder to <viz data folder>\ScriptPlugins.
