"Can't access imported profiles..."

 

I'm afraid your problem description is a little vague to me. How did you import the profile if you can't access it?

 

As far as I know (W10 and TIR5 user myself), you have to drop your "Seth - Flight.xml" in the program files. More precise:

 

If you have a 64-bit Windows:

C:\Program Files (x86)\NaturalPoint\TrackIR5\Profiles

 

If you have a 32-bit Windows:

C:\Program Files\NaturalPoint\TrackIR5\Profiles

 

Navigate to this folder via the File Explorer and copy the xml there.

 

If I did not understand your problem well, let it know.

Thank you for helping Vital.

 

Yes in 64 bit that is exactly where it is but I find that W10x64 will not allow the profile to be loaded and does not see it while browsing.

 

It wasn't a problem while using W7x64.

 

I wondered if there's a setting I don't know about. I have been using TrackIR since TIR4 and reviewed the only free copy of the appliance so I'm no novice to them. ;-)

Hi,

I previously had the same problem when I upgraded to windows 10. I did a web search and found this solution that worked for me Natural Point forum.

When using 5.3 your profiles are stored in a different location. Profiles are stored in the directory "%AppData%\NaturalPoint\TrackIR 5\Profiles".

 

 

Thank you so much Phil-J

I just looked at the TrackIR version and it says 5.4 so that explains why I misled you to the Program Files folder. :)
