3dxware 10 - settings location

Post by spainman » Sun Jun 01, 2014 11:40 am

Hi,
where are the user settings (personal button configurations, sensitivity etc.) stored in Win7 x64? I want to backup the settings.
I assume it's in .../user/AppData/ but then there are different 3dconnexion folders that might belong to a pre V10 installation so it seems better to ask...

Thanks in advance.

Hope this helps:
C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\3Dconnexion\3Dxware\Cfg 3Dxware 10 driver.
C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\3Dconnexion\3Dxware\Profiles is the 3.17.8 driver

I assume you mean C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\3Dconnexion\3DxWare\Cfg, right?
What about the stuff in ...\AppData\Local\3Dconnexion\ ?
Still quite confusing. What happens if I simply delete all 3Dconnexion folders in AppData? Will all needed stuff be recreated when the Software is restarted or do I need to reinstall? I don't mind loosing the current settings by doing so. I just want a clean start for subsequent backups and settings syncing between machines.
