    • In earlier versions of Groove:
      C:\Program Files\Groove Networks\Groove\Bin
  3. To move to this folder, use one of the following methods as appropriate:
    • If you are using Microsoft Windows XP or Microsoft Windows 2000 Server, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
      cd C:\program files\groove networks\groove\bin
    • If you are using an earlier version of Windows, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
