Which of the instructions did you not understand ?

I think the readme gives at least some advice on how to get going.
I could not describe it much better here.

At least editing a setup via context menu by clicking the right mouse button should not be that difficult.
Drag'n'Drop between the window panels is standard Windows user interface.
It is similar to using the Windows Explorer.

I cant seem to edit/create the paths, I run the exe and from there Iam not really sure how to set the path to my setups. or where the library is/should be.
Gawd bless you for trying to explain, it will be a uphill struggle...

Examples:
Library Path:
«rbr»\SavedGames\setups

RBR Path:
«rbr»

AllCarsINI:
«rbr»\SavedGames\setups\AllCars.ini

If you do not know what «rbr» is supposed to be ..., well ;)

See these just as examples. You then can create subfolders from within the manager to create a folder structure to suit your needs, e.g. Xsara/gravel, Xsara/snow, Fiesta/gravel ect ect.

I may be going mad, but what i ment is i could not type where the paths go, now I can. Naturally, i did not change anything either... sometimes my stupidity is awesome!

I applaud your patience, and with juuuust enough sarcasm to keep it all interesting. I will hopefully get it up and running tomorrow (when I have enough time) but as someone who has a setup for each track (all wrong mind you) this should really help. Thanks for all the hard work Mr B

Version 2.3 available for download.

The latest version fixes an annoying window position issue when minimized on close.

I have the software setup as follows:
setupmgr.JPG

But when I drag and drop the files onto Car 7 folder it tells me that the file exists and do I want to overwrite it, i say no. When I go to look at the folders the two files don't appear in mix, gravel or any of the others. Am I missing something ?

Could be that it does not like that you have no subfolder in "Library".
Just create a "Peugeot 208" or whatever folder in your Library.
Then it should work.
I recommend creating separate folders for each car, then gravel, tarmac, snow folders in each of them.
Helps keep things organized.

I have tried dragging a file directly onto the Library folder, which causes an exception.
I think I can live with that ... so obviously subfolders are a requirement.
