    Default Retrieve my old hem config (and my old hands)

    Hi,
    I have reinstalled windows XP but before I had made a copy of my hard drive.
    Now I have reinstalled HEM but I want to know howto "load" my previous configuration of hem (my personnal poup, the definition of the alias and all the options).
    Maybe I can use the files in the foler RVG Software\Holdem Manager\Config.

    For my "old hands" history, can I use the files in the folder \RVG Software\archive in my old drive to retreive them?
    Sorry if I am not english fluent and thank you for your help!

    If this is the same computer, with the same OS, and the same sites and importing paths, you can probably use the entire \config folder. Most of the settings are saved in the \config\holdemmanager.config file. Your HUD(s) are stored in the prefs.xml file and any custom popups would be mixed within the other .pop files.

    Yes, and any other archived and/or exported hand history files. If you play at ftp/stars you can email support@yourpokersite and ask for them to be emailed to you.


    Under Vista and Windows 7 make sure UAC is disabled http://www.holdemmanager.net/faq/afmmain.aspx?faqid=73 or else 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 "Run as admin" from the popup menu. Windows 7 you MUST set all the executables to always run as admin.

    Turn off Windows Firewall for installing HM and PostgreSQL. You must also add exceptions to the Windows firewall, even if it is off. If you have a 3rd party firewall, uninstall it completely before installing HM/SQL - http://www.holdemmanager.net/faq/afm...aspx?faqid=171

    * Install the complete setup of HM: http://www.holdemmanager.com/downloa...demmanager.zip
    * Download the latest patch HM: http://www.holdemmanager.com/downloads/HmBetaUpdate.exe

    * Install PostgreSQL 8.4, with your firewall uninstalled or turned off if windows firewall - http://www.enterprisedb.com/products...oad.do#windows


    Start Holdem Manager and connect/create a new UTF DB.

    Search the FAQ for the setup guide for your poker site:
