### Re: Getting started with Reactor

Where is this folder?

%appdata%\Blackmagic Design\Fusion\Config\Reactor.fu

I can't find it - it doesn't seem to exist on my WIndows system.

EDIT:
I would prefer to use the Visual Installer but despite working great on one computer its totally failiing on this one.

Now I am trying to follow the manual install directions and I can't find the Config folder anywhere on my computer.

Thanks for any help!!

EDIT:
I found it. I didn't realize the path listed above is broken because it includes a file name that doesn't exist.

The install path should be: %appdata%\Blackmagic Design\Fusion\Config\

Just some Info if the installer fails writing files to "/var/BlackmagicDesign"
A normal user does not have write access there. So you need to create the folder and add your user with chmod

If you find yourself in that situation, you don't have to use that install location.

The REACTOR_INSTALL_PATHMAP environment variable can be used to change the Reactor installation location to something other than the default PathMap value of "AllData:".
