View Full Version : Unable to import from folder

01-24-2010, 05:28 AM
I am attempting to import 200,000 hands from a folder on my external hard drive. I select the folder, and choose import. It says there are 420 files to be imported. However, none of the actual hands are being imported- instead they are all coming up as import errors. For example, I stopped the download with 7 files imported, 0 hands imported, and 2,442 import errors. What am I doing wrong? :confused:

Please update to the latest beta - http://www.holdemmanager.com/downloads/HmBetaUpdate.exe

For W7 and Vista you must set \holdem manager\dbcontrolpanel.exe, holdemmanager.exe and hmhud.exe are started as administrator. Run the windows explorer and navigate to your Holdemmanager installation directory. Right click the executables and select properties... then select "Run as admin" from the compatibility tab. If you have Vista and the checkboxes are greyed out and you can't select it, please turn UAC on, reboot, and then set the files to run as administrator.


Which site are these hands played on? Played by you or datamined hands?
Can you attach one of the hands.

The hands are datamined. I bought them from PTR 100k from FTP and stars.

I'll attach 1 hand from each site.

Please zip and email some of the actual files. Please zip and email the problem hand histories, with a link to this thread, to support@holdemmanager.net

Try copying the hands to your desktop instead of importing directly from the external (via usb). Also try creating a new DB and see if some of them import.
