Folders & Registry

ARC will install itself into a folder for the application to be stored. However, folders are also used for storing user files, robot skills, 3d design files, and more. Here is a list of registries and folders that ARC creates. If you uninstall ARC, these folders and registry entries can be removed if you want a clean removal. Knowing these folders and registry locations is also helpful in understanding how ARC installs on your computer system.


  • Application Installation

    This is the folder where the executable and required libraries will be installed.

    %ProgramFiles(x86)%\Synthiam Inc\ARC by Synthiam
    (i.e. C:\Program Files (x86)\Synthiam Inc\ARC by Synthiam)

  • Program Data

    This folder contains the downloaded robot skills, example projects, and 3d printed design files

    %ProgramData%\Synthiam Inc\ARC by Synthiam
    (i.e. C:\ProgramData\ARC)

  • Personal Data

    For every user, there is a personalized ARC project and configurations folder located in their My Documents folder. This allows each user to have their projects and configurations.

    (i.e. C:\Users\\Documents\ARC)


All configuration data in the ARC registry is stored per-user basis. This allows each user to have a unique configuration, including the color theme profile, default code editor, and other long-term settings.
