Hi everyone,

How can I transfer my DVX settings to a new computer?

I have installed DVX on my new notebook, I even copied what I though would be the Settings file to the appropriate folder in the new notebook, but it doesn't seem to work.

What I miss most is my large collection of typing shortcuts, although the client/topic list would also be neat to have on my new machine.


Thanks for any advice.

Csaba

I used to have XP on my old notebook, now I use W7 - if this matters.

It should work Nov 26, 2009

Hi Csaba

If you copied the correct settings file to the right location it should work.
Check your path and file name under Tools>Options>General>Miscellaneous.

Please note that the settings file doesn't include user interface settings etc., for which you would need to delve into the registry (not as scary as it may sound) - see "Back-up: Which registry keys do I need to back-up if I want to save all settings of DVX?" at http://forums.atril.com/ubbthreads7/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=787 (if you aren't registered for the forum yet you'll need to register to see that page).

Kind regards

Herbert

Installation repair Nov 26, 2009

Hi Csaba,

Have you tried repairing the installation?

Have a look at p.13 of the following link:
