Adding ESO PTS to Minion
 
I just installed ESO PTS on an external HD, a different location from my original ESO installation. How can I get Minion to work with both installations? I copied the addons folder to the PTS folder, and most of my addons are working OK in PTS; but I see no obvious way to keep them updated or to replace those that don't work without using Minion.

- Click the big [+] button located under the Minion logo in Minion.
- Select Elder Scrolls Online
- A browse window will open. navigate to "C:\Users\<your username>\Documents\Elder Scrolls Online\pts\AddOns" and press "select folder" at the bottom of the file browse window.
- You'll see a new game added to your list, it will just be named "Elder Scrolls Online" you can right click it and rename so you can identify it differently from live.

I followed the 1st 3 steps easily enough. But after selecting folder, no new game was added to the list. Any ideas?

Close Minion, also teh sysetemtray icon.
Rename the file Minion.xml to something else (keep and rename it back to the original name if it does not work).
Start Minion again and choose the folders for live and pts.
Run Minion as admin!

That PLUS running the .exe as admin worked.

Thank you!

Windows Junction Live → PTS addons
 
A clever trick that a fellow add-on author taught me:

Create a windows junction or symlink between your Live\AddOns and PTS\AddOns directories.

Then you never have to manage PTS add-ons separately: your PTS client has the same add-ons as your live client. Quite a time-saver.

That's actually even easier (and I learned something new! Bonus!). Thanks!
