MINION can't find game

Two weeks ago Minion was working fine, then my boot drive died and I had to reinstall Windows 7. When I run a reinstalled Minion, the My Games screen appears and ESO is selected by default. No addons appear because of the default addon path. Closing Minion at that point allows me to repeatably return to the My Games screen.

However if I change the addon path to its correct location, or any valid path, Minion stops at a Loading screen (Untitled.jpg). The activity bar is moving but I'm stuck at the loading screen.

The Sort of Works xml & log files are from a reinstalled Minion where I get to the My Games screen
The Can't find game xml & log are from after I changed the addon path and stopped at the Loading screen

Some reason the path that was entered for PTS is this... (I blanked out your name in the path)

C:\Users\--your-name--\Documents\Elder Scrolls Online\pts\AddOnsI:\Dropbox\My Documents\Elder Scrolls Online\live\AddOns
*As you can see there are two paths listed for PTS addon folder string. Minion is tripping up on that.

Do you want to keep your addon folder inside your dropbox folder? If so then follow this...

I suggest opening your not working minion.xml in your favorite text editor and change the following lines:

<game addon-path="QzpcVXNlcnNcSmltXERvY3VtZW50c1xFbGRlciBTY3JvbGxzIE9ubGluZVxwdHNcQWRkT25z|STpcRHJvcGJveFxNeSBEb2N1bWVudHNcRWxkZXIgU2Nyb2xscyBPbmxpbmVcbGl2ZVxBZGRPbnM=" auto-update="false" display-name="Elder Scrolls Online (PTS)" game-id="ESO" unique-game-id="ESO-2"/>
Change to:
<game addon-path="STpcRHJvcGJveFxNeSBEb2N1bWVudHNcRWxkZXIgU2Nyb2xscyBPbmxpbmVccHRzXEFkZE9ucw==" auto-update="false" display-name="Elder Scrolls Online (PTS)" game-id="ESO" unique-game-id="ESO-2"/>
Save minion.xml & restart Minion. Hope this fixes it for you.

Actually misread you comment about 2 paths and deleted the second game addon-path tag as I don't use addons for the PTU. Minion is now working.

After re-reading your comment, I noticed the 2 paths in 1 and restored the PTU game addon-path tag with your change and now both Live and PTU are functioning.
