CouchPotato v2 (Beta unstable)


CP2I just wanted to add a quick ‘HowTo’ for CP v2 Beta, I’ve been asked a couple of times now about getting it running, so here we go.

  1. Download and install Python
  2. Download and install PyWin
  3. Download and install Git
  4. Download latest build of CouchPotato (this is a compressed file)
  5. Unpack the latest build to somewhere (I use c:\utils\CouchPotato.v2 but upto you)
  6. Run the command
    C:\Python27\python.exe C:\utils\Couchpotato.v2\
  7. That should launch CP, go through the initial install guide and import your previous database. I would put the app on a port other than the V1 one, so you can run in tandem.
  8. Configure the rest of the app now, just pop into settings and basically copy and paste the settings from V1 across.
  9. Create a shortcut in your %userprofile%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup folder to run C:\Python27\python.exe C:\utils\Couchpotato.v2\ and your all set.
