Re: FAQ(21): I accidentally checked the "Don't ask again". How do I bring it back?
If you just want to make an alternative selection, SD will remember the last mode you used every time you exit SDM. So, just select the mode you want and exit SDM with that mode active.
If you want to reset being asked and have the dialog show up again, please do the following:
For Windows Vista or Windows 7, navigate to the folder "C:\ProgramData\HP\HP SoftPaq Download Manager"
For Windows XP, navigate to the folder "C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\HP\HP SoftPaq Download Manager"
Make a backup of the Settings.xml to Settings.xml.bak
Open the Settings.xml file in notepad and look for the <DoNotAskSMBModeAgain> XML tag and change the value from "True" to "False" (do not use double quotes)
Save the Settings.xml file
If all else fails, just delete the Settings.xml file. SDM will generate a default Settings.xml file if it does not find it. Note: if your proxy settings are different from the default one, you will need to enter them in SDM to connect to our servers.
