iDR-4. Moving configurations between computers
Posted by Al Crombie, Last modified by Maf Prigg on 26 October 2012 03:16 PM
Q:
I have been running an iDR4 based system for some time now and am very pleased with it.
However, I now need to change the laptop I use to run the System Manager and have a set of archived configurations
that I need to transfer to the new computer,
 but I can't see where the .cfg files are stored in order to do this.

Can you help?



A:
By default, iDR-4 configuration settings are stored in the the following directory:
C:\Program Files\Allen & Heath\iDR System Manager V3.73\Configurations\iDR-n*
 
Unless a different folder has been selected when previously saving, or opening config files,
this is the same directory that iDR System Manager will open when


FILE > Open Configuration...

or
FILE > Archive Configuration...

options are selected.  In this case the .cfg file(s) will be stored in the user defined directory.

 

If the application does not default to the '...Configurations\iDR-4' folder,
you can always redirect the application to search this directory first, via the 'Save in:' menu in the Configuration file browser.
