    Important Service FAQ

    The following information applies to LimagitoX and LimagitoXI (not for the newer versions like v2017 and higher).

    After setup you’ll find two versions of LimagitoX in it’s install directory. An application version (= LimagitoX.exe) and a service version (= Service\LimagitoX.exe).

    Important FAQ about using LimagitoX as an application or service:

    1) LimagitoX is used as application

    • You can run the application version without the service version. The service version isn’t needed when using our File Mover as an application.
    • Settings will be saved in a SQLite database. You can find this database and all other configuration files under the ‘Settings directory’ menu item. A backup of this folder is all you need in cas of recovery.


    2) LimagitoX is used as a service

    • You can run the service version without the application version.
    • You only need the application version as a setup tool for the service.
    • Install the service once (do not uninstall/install with every update). Use the Service Setup tool within LimagitoX to control the Service.


    • You need to change the default logon as user of the service with a user that has sufficient rights (network, share, …).
    • You’ll need to restart service every time you change something in the setup.
    • The service version will share it’s settings database with the application version.
    • Please close the application version when you’re done. It’s not a good idea to let them both run.
    • When you open the the application version and the LimagitoX service is already running then it will set the status of all moving rules in the application version to ‘Rule Enabled & Not Scanning’. We don’t want the application version to interfere with the running LimagitoX service.
    • If you want to know what the service is doing then please to enable the built-in HTTP server (Server Menu => HTTP Server). When the server is enabled you can connect to it’s webpage (default ) and check the runtime log of the LimagitoX service.

    LimagitoXI (v11) File Mover Released

    Dear users,

    LimagitoXI Filemover is available in the download section of

    The License Key of version X will not work on this new version. Corporate license holders can request their License key for version XI.

    Some things to keep in mind when upgrading to version XI.

    • Version X and XI use the same settings database. Create a backup of your settings first!
    • You don’t need to uninstall version X. Both can be installed at the same time. Version XI uses a different install folder (no need to change this).
    • Do not run version X and XI at the same time because both would interfere with each other.
    • The major change in version XI is the way it handles files that were found. The result of this change is that version X can handle the sort order of files found (sort order by date [FIFO] and name are possible).
    • 64bit version is available

    Best Regards,
