These instructions apply to the Premium Access version of MCEBuddy. Use the following procedure to setup MCEBuddy to use an alternative version Comskip:
- Extract ALL the Comskip files (including .INI and all other files) from the Comskip zip archive into a directory (e.g.
- Open MCEBuddy Settings -> General Settings -> System Settings
- Click on the … next to Comskip path
- Select the comskip.exe from your Comskip directory e.g.
- Click Ok
NOTE: If you don’t extract ALL the files comskip will not work. It needs all the files included in the zip archive.
It is preferable to follow OPTION 1 instructions, these settings will be preserved/carried over when you upgrade or reinstall MCEBuddy
Alternative you can extract all the files from the Comskip zip archive to the MCEBuddy Installation directory into the Comskip folder (replace all the files).
NOTE: With this option, when you upgrade MCEBuddy or reinstall MCEBuddy it will overwrite this folder with the default free version of bundled Comskip.
