How To Use RhinoBackup.bat

  1. Create a new folder called "RhinoBackup" anywhere on your machine
  2. Download Info-Zip's "zip.exe" and place it into your "RhinoBackup" folder
  3. Create a new text file called "RhinoBackup.bat" in your "RhinoBackup" folder
  4. Open "RhinoBackup.bat" using a text editor (such as NotePad)
  5. Copy everything from the "RhinoBackup.bat" section above into the text file, remove any leading or trailing spaces, and save the file.
  6. Double-click your "RhinoBackup.bat" file
  7. Save or send the resulting RhinoSoft_Config_Backup.zip file.

If you encounter any problems, open a command line window, CD into your "RhinoBackup" folder and try running the batch file from there. If trouble persists, remove the "@echo off" command from the batch file to see more verbose output.
