Getting Started!

I followed the path that is mentioned in the directions for uploading the gphelper file. It is not there. For kicks, I tried all of my toons' saved variables folders and it's not there. I also searched my computer and only found the one that's in the addons folder - which is not the one to use........right??? The addon seems to work within the game. I have been able to use it in game. I checked the file after I exited the game. Not there.

So I must have missed a step in the installation or something. Was I supposed to create that file myself?

Thanks, D

the file is created automatically when you exit the game.  It should not be in any toon sub folders.  it should be in the WTF folder under whatever account name you are logged into when you run the /gph update command.  Inside that account name folder should be a "Saved Variables" folder with the file GPHelper.lua in it.

When you do a seacrh on your computer, try *.lua for the file to search for and see if it pops up.  You can limit the search to your World of Warcraft folder to help narrow and reduce the search time.

I am having the same problem. This file does not create where you say. I have tried the search and again I only find the interface/addonns folder .lua file...

Killgasm has it right:

World of Warcraft                 ->
WTF                                      ->
Account                                 ->
<<your account name>>      ->
SavedVariables                     ->
GPHelper.lua

I had the same problem...if you're running Vista or Windows 7 it may be the security settings.  Try right clicking on WoW and then click "Run as Administrator".  Once I did that it created the .lua w/out any problems.
