View Full Version : New User, can't get HUD running

I purchased HEM last night and cannot get the HUD to come up. I have just figured out how to import the HH. Also, I don't know what folder I should select for the archived hands.

For the HUD issues:

Please update to the latest beta from the link in my signature. If you have Vista, please verify that UAC is still off. If it is on, please turn it off and reboot. http://www.holdemmanager.net/faq/afmmain.aspx?faqid=73 If that doesn't help, please answer these questions. http://www.holdemmanager.net/faq/afmviewfaq.aspx?faqid=174

For the Archive question:

I suggest C:\HMArchive or similar, but preferably on a different partition or external HD. I usually suggest backing up your entire HM DB to text files, thru the Database Management screen, and then back up your entire \Holdem Manager folder. I use a program called AllWay Sync (inexpensive). I believe Cobian BackUp is similar, and open-source/free.
