Installing/Adding PC Windows Games easily


Recommended Posts

If I wanted to install a windows game in launchbox do I choose the location C:\Users\(myusername)\LaunchBox\Games\Windows as a location? That's where all my windows games that didn't need to be installed are, the ones that are in self contained folders that can easily be moved.

I too would be interested in knowing the process for adding non-installed Windows games to LB that just have a .exe. Stuff like fan-made games, etc. None of the importers work for me as none of these games are "Installed" and pining them to the start menu doesn't work either.

Non-installed Windows games are easy, like neil9000 said you can just drag the .exe file into LaunchBox. I am more concerned with Windows games that require installation and usually install files and folders all over my computer such as in my program files, my program files (x86), my documents sometimes for game saves, and any other place. I am going to need a new computer real soon and I was hoping I can just move LaunchBox into my new computer and everything would be good to go, I really don't want to have to reinstall a bunch of programs.
