Digital Image Library 2006 - share library across multiple PCs?

Post by SmVmZiBQcm » Mon, 05 Sep 2005 05:47:01


I have three copies of Digital Image Suite 2006 installed on 3 PCs at home
and I'd like to be able to view, set flags, ratings, etc on the photos that
are stored on our server from any of the PCs and see the same library.

For example, I'd like my wife to be able to view photos and set ratings and
the print flag on the photos from her laptop and then be able to see those
when I view the libray from our main home PC. I've played around with the
registry setting to locate the libabry database file on the server - but I
don't know if this is a viable option.

Thanks for the help.

Jeff

===========================================
There is a separate database for each user
account.

Your DIS Library 2006 database is found at:

C:\Documents and Settings\>user name<\
Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\
POD\Pictures.pd3

Hi Jeff, I came across this blog post which might be of help:

Sharing Digital Image Suite 2006 Database between users
http://www.yqcomputer.com/ ,guid,d37f8345-2fa0-4d2c-81a1-fa5d700559dd.aspx

Steps are as follows:
1.. Locate %USERPROFILE%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\POD
2.. Move the Pictures.pd3 file and move that to a centralized location (I
placed this in D:\Files\Settings\POD\
3.. Open the Registry and find
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Picture It!\11.0\POD
4.. Set DBPath to the full path of the new file (for me this is
D:\Files\Settings\POD\Pictures.pd3)
