How to uninstall w/o deleting Config File?

[quote=Toirealach;49703]Uninstall your old Minion, don't delete the configuration directory, and install the new 3.0.12 version.


Hi. I cannot figure out how to uninstall without deleting the config dir.
If I use my Windows 11 (cursed be its name) app uninstall utility, it does not ask if I want to keep Config Dir. Or perhaps I have not gone far enough in it? The last popup I have (Did not click because afraid to delete it all) just says "hey dummy, are you SURE you want to unistall? OK, so hit this button " <Paraphrased>

help, please. I am sure the solution is simple, I just don't know it

Appreciate the assist in advance

If you have not configured Minion ebfore or you did uninstall or delete the config files before it might not ask you to keep them.
Check teh sticky threads about how to report a bug and there you will find the dicrectories where the minion.xml and log files are located.
-> Ususally it's the hidden folder c:\user\your windows username\.minion
If that folder is missing or the xml file is missing in there, there is nothing to keep.

Thank you. The xml file is there. I have configured Minion before, I am wanting to update to the latest, since the old one is no good any longer.

I just don't want to have to hunt down and reload all the AddOns again. Just had to do that recently on a brand new laptop and it was a pain trying to remember them all =D

Guess I'll have to risk it.

Hm, if that popup shown here at point 2 https://www.esoui.com/forums/showthread.php?t=8082
is not shown if you uninstall Minion, I do not know why it isn't.

Maybe the XML is there but it's empty or a default one then.
In that case you'd have to reconfgure it and maybe also get the addons manually again

But you can look at your addons folder to see which ones they are!
Here is how you find your addons folder (Screenshot trick, ingame e.g.):
