Before updating Commander software it is recommended that the configuration files be backed up. Below is a list of files that should be backed up.

To Backup Commander Configuration Files

1) Search with Windows Explorer in the directory that Commander was installed for the following


a. EGRP*.txt

b. COMMSET*.txt

c. DATA.txt

d. EVTBTN.txt

e. GROUP*.txt

f. LOOP*.txt

g. REC*.txt

2) Copy all the above files to a new folder for backup purposes. (The * in some of the above file

names is a wild card character allowing you to find multiple files during a search.)

Additional important files that you should backup are:

Commander 4.2ModbusModbusTables.mdb

Commander 4.2ModbusFilesModbusFileNames.mdb

Commander 4.2LiveCommander.mdb

Commander 4.2Blank.mdb

Commander 4.2Email.mdb
