Rebuild show file?

Recommended Posts

To recover a .watch file from a display computer,

first go to the display computer, find the folder where watchout is installed,

and in that folder you will find a folder named "  Shows  "

In the Shows folder, you will find more folders, each with the name of a stored show.

Open the folder for the show you wish to recover. There, you will find a file named   Spec

Copy the Spec file to use for the recovery process.


The procedure for re-creating a show file from a Spec file is quite straightforward...

1. Rename the Spec file DFC_Data (no file extension)
2. Zip the file
3. Rename the resulting Zip file to Whatever.watch

Best regards,
Fredrik Svahnberg
