    Hi Guys,

    I am trying to save my configuration file from ESS but with no luck in restoring it.
    I have followed all guides I could find (including Blackspears) but still when i export my config file into xml from main console > import/export settings > some.xml and thereafter change my settings, Importing the saved xml configuration file doesn't change those settings back to normal... Any ideas what I am missing?

    Specifically I want to disable the ballon popups that appear with every db update. I went to F5 advanced menu, scrolled to alerts&notification and checked/ticked to only show popups when user intervention is required.
    My configuration file at its smallest change was that tick box, on and off.
    No matter what I cant seem to restore the previous configuration.

    I am using v.3.0.684 with latest updates and wistles.

    Any advice much appreciated

    Hello ViralNote,

    Anything under "User interface" cannot be changed via xml due to those settings being stored in HKCU rather than HKLM.

    Thank you,
