Where are SoftSurface configuration files kept?

Updated 1 month ago by Bryan Jones

Scope

This document helps you locate the location where SoftSurface stores its configuration files.

Description

Most of the time, you will never need to access the configuration files used by SoftSurface directly. However, it may occasionally be useful to create a backup, or possibly move settings from one computer to another.Location of the files

Location of the files

SoftSurface files are stored in a hidden system folder.

Direct editing of these files is neither supported or suggested. This is provided for information only.

Files are stored in the AppData folder for the user who installed the software, for example;

C:\Users\AxiaUser\AppData\Roaming\Axia\SoftSurface\config

There are three files in this folder.

  • channels.cfg - holds individual channel information if SoftSurface is used as a virtual console.
  • host_cfg.xml - general configuration for SoftSurface. For example, connection lists.
  • htaccess.cfg - web access passwords for use when using SoftSurface as a virtual console.

How do I know where my AppData folder is?

The AppData folder could be different from one computer to another. However, you can typically access this folder by entering the system variable %appdata% in either the Run dialog or Windows Explorer, as shown here.
