Latest News / How to register on this forum
« Last post by dhal on June 05, 2012, 10:20:30 AM »
This forum has been swamped by fake users and automated bots who aim to register in order to advertise or send spam messages. For this reason, all requests for registration will be ignored/rejected unless you also send an email to my email address (you can find that on the dHAL website; I do not include it here, on purpose). In the email, just state the user name that you registered with, e.g. 'I registered on the dHAL forum under the name ...'.
The forum will be monitored and any users who do not seem to belong will be deleted.
I am sorry to have to put you through this, but the situation had gotten out of control.
Thank you for your understanding.
Tutorials / How to upgrade to version 4
« Last post by dhal on October 07, 2011, 04:05:59 AM »
If you are using Viewbox 3 you may consider upgrading to version 4 because v.3 will not be updated anymore. Version 4 can be installed in parallel to v.3, so you can work with both until you become familiar enough with v.4 to switch completely. The following procedure is recommended:
1. Backup your current data! (you have been warned)
2. Install Viewbox 4, accepting the default settings (i.e. install on your hard disk, preferably in folder "C:\Viewbox 4"). Viewbox 4 needs to be installed in a folder that has write permissions by the operating system. Windows Vista and Win 7 do not allow writes in the folder "C:\Program Files\", so do not install there.
3. Copy all of your data files from Viewbox 3 to Viewbox 4. Assuming both versions were installed with the default settings, these are the files that reside in folders "C:\Viewbox 3\Data\" and "C:\Viewbox 3\VBR\". By copying the files you will be able to work with your current data in both versions, without the fear of accidentally destroying them because of unfamiliarity with the new version.
