Many people uninstall and reinstall AbelCam trying to solve configuration problems.
While this might work with software that writes a default configuration in the registry on installation, reinstallation does not cure AbelCam problems.
To recover from faulty configuration and/or to reset the configuration you need to remove (or rename) the AbelCam folder.
If you don't know how to find it, click on Configuration Folder in the AbelCam / Web window.
If AbelCam is not starting up anymore, you can also follow this procedure:
- click Start / Run
- the following commands need to be confirmed with the enter key:
- depending on your language settings,
cd "Application Data"(" required if the folder name has spaces)
cd "Seiz System Engineering"
- now rename the AbelCam folder
ren AbelCam AbelCam.save
- now you can start AbelCam, and it will behave as if there was started for the first time - no reinstall required
Similar procedures can be used to back up or deactivate camera configurations within the AbelCam folder.
The camera configuration folders start with cam... - renaming them to save-cam... or similar will deactivate a camera.
