[FAQ] Configuration data is lost after upgrading JoyToKey version

Starting from JoyToKey version 6.3, user configuration data is stored in your “Documents/JoyToKey” folder.

In case you previously installed/used JoyToKey from a different folder location, please copy the original configuration files from the old “JoyToKey” folder to your “Documents/JoyToKey” folder (especially *.ini and *.cfg files).

Use custom folder location (For advanced users)

In case you need to store your configuration data in a different folder, JoyToKey supports the following folder locations.

  1. File path from a command line argument
  2. Path override from Registry
  3. User’s ”Documents/JoyToKey” folder
  4. JoyToKey.exe program folder (for backward compatibility)

The first case is useful in case you use some launcher to start JoyToKey by passing a profile path as a command line argument.

The second case is explained in more details here

The 3rd case is the default behavior for new installations since version 6.3.

The 4th case is for backward compatibility, in case you prefer the old behavior. For that, you can download JoyToKey in ZIP archive format instead of a self installer format. Then, unzip the file and place the content files in any folder location where your configuration data is stored.
