For the first time I tried to convert a commentary module to HD for my iPad. The tool opened and I was able to select the Commentary category. The tool ran through the module, but I do not know where the converted file wound up. I did not see any way to tell the tool where to file the converted module. I've looked in the e-Sword file where the other modules are located, but did not find the CMTXI file. Can anyone tell me what I need to do to find the missing file?

click on the Windows "start" button (lower left corner of the screen) and at the bottom of the menu, you'll find a "search program and files" box. Type this in the box - *.cmtxi - (without the dashes or spaces). Your computer should find that file.

OK, I did this and no file was found. I suppose I can try to convert again. Any other suggestions? Would it normally place the file in the e-Sword folder? I am confident the conversion took place. It was a rather large file and it took considerable time to go through it.

Did it search the correct drive? It seems possible (not likely, but possible) that the converter put the finished .cmtxi module on a different drive than your c: drive. What drive (and folder) is your converter on?

The converter is on C: in the e-Sword folder. The only other drive is D: Recovery Drive.

The converted file is a CMTI file, not CMTXI.  Be sure you are searching for the right thing!

After I converted my first commentary module successfully, I knew the file name with the extension *.cmti. However, I had to search my c: drive to find the file. It was here:
C:\Users\your name\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\e-Sword."

When doing a conversion, the converter can not save the file into the Program Files folder because of Windows User Access Control.  This is why Jogirl found the file in the VirtualStore.  It may be that the conversion will just fail to save a file if it started in the Program Files folder. 

 

What I do is COPY the file I want to convert to a separate folder out of the Program Files folder, and then do the conversion there.  The "i" file should then be in the same folder. 

 

Change subject - a convenient tool to search your hard drive is called "Everything".  Very fast for finding "missing" files.  It can be found here:

THANKS! That is exactly where my file was.

Avoid this odd file location by running the e-Sword converter as admin (right click the icon used to launch the converter or the converter exe itself, and choose Run as Admin). Discovered this annoyance myself recently after switching operating systems.
