Import User config?

Post by WB8AM » 18 Jan 2020, 19:49

Hello,

Is there a way to import a user configuration? I found the json file in the backup directory from my first PC and would like to use the exact same config in the new PC. Unfortunately I could not find a similar json file in the new one to overwrite.

Thanks!

Brian,

V2 has a completely different structure and database. All configuration elements must be entered in V2. In other words you cannot import the V1 configuration into V2.

Be sure to save an ADIF v3 of your log from Log4OM V1 and that is the file you will then import into your new log that you will create in V2.

Users Guide and Quick Start Guide have good steps on this.

Thanks for your reply! I am going from V2 into V2 but with a new computer.

Very best,
Brian

Brian,

The config.json should be in the same location from one computer to another - assuming both are V2 as you stated, unless one of the installations was for the portable version. For the portable version, the config.json file will be in a location under the program folder or drive where you installed it - example \Log4OM2_Portable\Config\User...

Hope that helps.
