Hello all,

I usually save more interesting chapter links under the CFX Online Help 'favorites' tab (or whatever it's called in the english language version):

Question. Any time I reinstall a new CFX version or install a same version onto a different computer, I find the 'favorites' tab empty, in vergine state - is there a way to save the 'favorites' to a file and reload 'em into a new installation ?

Thanks & nice day.

you cant copy the favourites from an old version to the newer purely because the help files are different.

if you are upgrading computers and use windows you can copy the microsoft HTML help favourites file (hh.dat) which is usualy located at

C:\Documents and Settings\<User>\Application Data\Microsoft\HTML Help
Top 4 tips
1. Knowledge is everything and Ignorance is dangerous.
2. Understand your limitations and try to eliminate them.
3. Get yerself a bike and hoon the chuffer. You will soon learn why dogs like to hang their heads out the car window.
4. Please before asking any questions on how to run simulations in CFX, go though all the tutorials

copying favorites from cfx11 to 12 - true, changed Help.
But while installing 11 onto another PC there is no change,
so evtl favorites file should be reimportable if exportable from former PC.

Thanks & nice day.

P.S. Couldn't find that path: C:\...\HTML Help
