    CVData/CVCX : How to transfer a strategy ?

    Is it possible to transfer (export/import) a strategy from one computer to an other ?
    And a CVData configuration ?

    Yes, but it's a pain.

    To transfer a strategy:

    1. Enter CVData
    2. Hit CTRL-T (nothing will happen)
    3. Enter Define/Edit Strategies
    4. Hit OPEN
    In the user strategies you will see the file names in brackets. Copy the file.

    For Windows Vista and higher:

    CVData files are in c:\ProgramData\qfit\cvdata
    CVBJ files are in c:\\ProgramData\qfit\cvbj

    For Windows XP:

    CVData files are in c:\program files\qfit\cvdata
    CVBJ files are in c:\program files\qfit\cvbj

    If the file already exists when you try to copy it, rename it to a higher number.

    Win7 and higher hide the ProgramData directory for some odd reason. To unhide files:
    a. Start Button
    b. Control Panel
    c. Click on Appearance and Personalization
    d. Click on Folder Options
    e. Go to the tab View
    f. Check “Hidden files and folders: Show all files and folders”
    g. Click “OK”.

    To transfer a CVData configuration:

    Never tried this. But, it should work.
    1. Click Archives.
    2. Click on a sim output for a sim created with the configuration you wish to copy and click Export
    3. Copy the created file
    4. Import on the second PC
    5. Create a new config
    6. On the Archive screen, click on the imported sim and click Load. This should load the configuration out of the sim output and into the open config. Note, it will not copy strategies.


    NOTE: If you wish to copy ALL sims, strategies and configurations, that's easier. Just copy the entire directory. Also, never go from a newer to older version. File structures change. Older to newer is OK as it will see if a file is older and update it.

    Great !
    Clear and accurate, as ever.

    For hidden directories (and a lot more), I recommend Free Commander

    Do you grant permission to "publish" strategies for CVCX/CVBJ users ?

    Not sure what you mean. Most of the strategies included in CV are from the books, always with permission from the authors. But, I can't extend that permission. You can certainly distribute your own modifications.

    I mean, indexes generated by CVData, mainly with ENHC and Early Surrender.
    It's not really my work but (indirectly) your.
    And free publishing, of course.

    Just out of curiosity with no plans to use the info. How does copyright affect international use of intellectual property? I mean tis is the internet. Would copyright extend worldwide? Is it dependent on the home country of the website? The fact the the question was asked by someone obviously in another country just had me wondering how all that works.

    It actually has an AP application. Indian casinos often pay the copyright holder to offer his/hers/its copyrighted games (or do not pay for all I know) and then violate the copyright by changing the rules without the permission of the owner of the copyright because they are on sovereign land. Some Indian casinos that are not on sovereign land also do this. So what is the deal? Can any casino do this without permission from the copyright owner? What about foreign countries or international waters? If so what situations must be in place that federal copyright law doesn't apply. It really doesn't affect me because I don't go to Indian casinos. Again just curious.

    The Berne Convention, which goes back to 1886, protects copyrights in all signatory countries. 186 countries have signed the treaty. So, if you are in North Korea, you can violate copyrights as they didn't sign. The home country of the site isn't relevant. Native American sovereignty is over my head. But, I haven't seen any mass duplication of new movies, books, music, software coming from Amerind lands.

    Incidentally, I believe all U.S. states and state universities also enjoy sovereign immunity from torts. So, you couldn't bring a claim of damages against a state university for copyright infringements. (You could sue a student.) You may be able to sue for injunctive relief. The same may be true for Amerind governments. Might be able to bring a tort against their citizens. But, IANAL.

    And thanks Norm. My only real interest was Indian casinos but it is always nice to learn something new from a trusted and well informed source.

    Reciprocity. Like anything else, if you want to claim sovereignty for yourself; you have to grant it to others.

    It does not work anymore.
    Result is as a new installation.
