Hello Kodu Community,

When installing kodu how do I

1. specify the directory where to it is to be installed

2. where does kodu programming get saved? My computer lab uses Faronics Deep Freeze to preserve the system. This means at reboot, everything is restored to its original settings which means any kodu saves will be losed unless the saves are done the server. I would think many school administrators would have similar issues and wanted to know what they did when rolling out kodu in a lab.

Background

1. I downloaded kodu game lab from http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/...

Thanks,

JeffJensen

Hello Scott,

thanks for the reply.

I have two folders in my C:\Users\student\Documents\SavedGames\Boku\Player1

Content/Xml

Imports

Any documentation on these folders? If I have a export kodu file (.kodu), do I place this in the Imports folder to use it? If I want to make some minor changes to the kodu world, can I just edit the Xml files?

thanks,

JeffJensen
