Know you are busy programming using your new neural/computer interface, but I ran into a bit of a puzzler and wanted to document it so others won't go nuts when they have the same problem.
I'm in the process of setting up a brand-new computer which is running Windows 8.1 (64-bit). The main work computer is showing its age and, since it is running XP (32-bit) and can't be upgraded, it was time for a change.
I grabbed a fresh copy of Tools from my User Assistant and installed it on the 8.1 computer.
From the XP computer, I took the .hsf files found in Program Files>Html-Kit>Tools>bin which is what I have done in the past to move settings or even a whole pile of snippets from one computer to the next.
I launched Tools and it did its usual thing with the "Preparing for First Time Use" notice on the start graphic.
Exited Tools and copied the .hsf files from the XP machine into the bin of the 8.1 machine.
Started Tools and it once again said "Preparing for First Time Use" while it was booting.
Again, no change.
From looking at the bin files, found that Tools had overwritten the config.hsf file from the XP computer.
Tried copying a few more times and even uninstalled (using Revo) and re-installation with the same result.
I don't know what this bug could be, but it may have to do with the architecture between XP and 8.1??
I was finally able to solve the problem by taking the .hsf files from my Windows 7 machine and placing them into the bin of the 8.1.
Not sure what all this proves, but I just wanted to document some information that will, hopefully, save some others a similar headache.
And, has anyone done a transfer of the .hsf files from XP to Windows 8.1??
