How to recover existing profiles from previous version

Post by albe31 » 25 Jul 2019, 10:25


is there a (simple or not too complicated) mean to recover profiles created by previous version of SPAD-neXt ?

These profiles (.xml files) are located in the correct folder (/Documents/SPAD.neXt/profiles).
They are shown when using "Open Profiles Folder" but are not available in the list in the middle of the main window of SPAD.neXt

It would be greatly useful to know how to do this, to prevent the lack of time recreating all my previous specific profiles (I've got numerus Airplanes...)

Perhaps editing the first lines of the xml files, but what to put there ?

Thank you in advance for your answers,

Profiles that are in the folder but not offered to be loaded have some kind of problem.
Either broken, or a provider/sim referenced in it is not activated.
You can check the logfile. It will tell you why a profile is not being offered.
