How to change the archive location, path, or drive for Advanced Reports.


  • The default directory for Archiving files in System Manager Software 4.0 (SMSPE) Advanced Reports is C:\POWERLOGIC\Advanced Reports\Archive. If the folder needs to be changed to another drive or directory, then follow the procedure below. This procedure should only be used by a qualified person who is familiar with backing up the registry before making changes.


    1. Stop the "PowerLogic.Database.RptStgDBMaintService.exe" service with Windows Service manager.
    2. Open the registry. In the Registry, change the path in the "ArchiveLocation" registry key under Square D Company\Advanced Reports\Report Database\Archive\ to the new path.
    3. Be sure to include a slash at the end.
    4. Restart the service.
