  2. Hi Rahul,


    I have posted this content but I have'nt got any answers so If possible can you answer this:


    I would like to export all the pages in my hyperview with required screen resolution. In Hyperview there is an option in Menu- Export* - Multiple Images - old/Advanced where I can specify width and height seperatly. But this option is restrictred to 'Export each window separately total page size'. This means If i have 4 windows in a page this option is exporting images of individual window with specified resolution.


    I would like to export all the pages with required width and height.


    At present I am trying to using command window with following commands by opening every page:


    hwi GetSessionHandle sess

    sess CaptureScreenToSize png 01.png 1400 593


    I am trying to write a tcl/tpl script to automate this process (Export all pages with given width and height).


    It would be appreciated if someone can help me with this code.


    Thanks in advance

  5. Your post about deleting settings files helped me to resolve my problem with the panel area sliding right and off of the screen. Thank you for the information.

    Unfortunately, yes, I lost all of my settings. That wasn't a surprise, but is there a way to backup settings so they can be read in again?

    For example, I use the favorite panel, Star, a lot. I lost my collection of favorite panels. Is there a way to keep these and restore them quickly in the future?

    Thank you very much.

  7. error 9 after download

    Use windows folder options > unhide known extensions, to make sure the file is named altair_lic.dat and not altair_lic.dat.dat, You need to confirm if the Ethernet address in the license file is the correct one and matches the one in your machine. When you open the license file in a text editor you will see an Ethernet address there in a line that says "ETHERNET = The Ethernet ID is the ID of your machine which is exactly 12 hexadecimal numbers. For example D4WRF478F398 Run ipconfig/all in command window and check for physical address under Ethernet adapter local area connection: The listed physical address under Ethernet adapter local area connection should be used to generate the license file, That means if the address provided as above does not match the one in the license file, please request for the license file again with the correct Ethernet ID. You can check your computer’s Ethernet address, by using the almutil -hostid application from the Start > Altair > Tools > Admin tools Menu and compare it with the result in the command window, Alternatively run getmac in command window to find out available Ethernet addresses to cross check as well,
