Importing Connectivity Settings

Use the import functionality of the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard to transfer Connectivity settings, which were previously exported to a Hummingbird Settings Transfer (.humfst) file, to your machine. When importing, you are prompted to specify the settings that you want to transfer.

The format in which Connectivity settings are stored may differ between product versions. Therefore, when importing Connectivity settings for previous product versions, the wizard automatically updates the format of the registry entries and user settings files to match that of the current version.

To import product settings:

  1. On the Windows Start menu, navigate to the Hummingbird Connectivity program group, point to Administrative Tools, and click Files and Settings Transfer Wizard. The Welcome page of the Files and Settings Transfer Wizard opens.
  2. Click Next.
  3. On the Select Operation page, select Import and click Next.
  4. On the Import page, specify or navigate to the Hummingbird Settings Transfer file (.humfst) that contains the products settings that you want to import.
  5. Click Next. The wizard reads the .humfst file for Hummingbird Connectivity product settings, and displays its progress in the Progress page. Once the process is complete, all available product settings are displayed in the Import Settings page.
  6. On the Import Settings page, in the Available Products Settings list, select the product for which you want to import settings, and click Next.
      It is recommended that you import only Connectivity settings for a single product version at a time. If you select Connectivity settings for multiple versions of a single product, the wizard preserves only settings for the most recent product (all other settings are overwritten). For example, if version 8.0 and 9.0 settings are simultaneously selected for import, then only version 9.0 settings are preserved.

The product(s) selected for import may contain common files and settings that might affect other Hummingbird Connectivity products currently installed on your machine. In this case, a green check mark appears next to these products in the Products Affected By Import area. Carefully review this list before importing the settings.
  1. On the Summary page, confirm that you want to import settings for the products you specified in step 6, and click Next to begin importing settings from the .humfst file. The Progress page opens to display the progress of the import process.
  2. On the Complete page, click Finish.
