Managing CityCAD configuration files

CityCAD creates configuration files which store your preferences. By default, these are stored in the Holistic City configuration directory:

Windows XP
C:\Documents and Settings\(your username)\Application Data\Holistic City\CityCAD

Windows Vista/7
C:\Users\(your username)\AppData\Roaming\Holistic City\CityCAD

You can change the location of these files from within CityCAD by selecting Edit Menu: Preferences, then 'Advanced'.

If you change the location, the original config files will remain where they are, but CityCAD will create and use new files in the new location you specify. Also if you delete the configuration files, CityCAD will create new ones the next time the program is run.

Summary of configuration files

Note that your configuration directory also contains your auto-saved files in the 'Autosave' directory, and the contents of your URB File Library in the 'Samples' directory.
