How to move my personal preferences from one installation of Active-HDL to another?


I recently changed my working computer and would like to move all of my preferences from my old computer to a new one. Is there a file or set of files that can transfer all the same settings and preferences in the new installation of Active-HDL?


You can move your preferences from one machine to another, also between different versions.

To do that in Windows explorer:

  1. Please navigate to BIN subfolder of Active-HDL.

  2. Execute prefman.exe .

  3. Select and export desired version.

  4. Copy exported file to a new computer and then import it.

  5. Re-launch the tool on the new computer to apply imported settings.
