  3. Open the file in SoMove.
  4. Goto the File menu and select Import/Export and then choose Export file.
    The file name will have to match the Keypad's format so give it a File name of DriveConfPac#.cfg where the # is replaced by a number.
    Save the file to the keypad's assigned hard drive under the DRVCONF folder.
  5. Once you receive notice on your PC that "The Graphic Display Terminal file is exported successfully." you can disconnect the keypad from the cable and connect it to the drive.
  6. Navigate to Menu 7 [File Management] and then to Menu 7.1 [Transfer config file].
  7. Select Copy to the drive and then select the file name you exported from SoMove.
  8. Press OK to confirm and your file should transfer from the keypad to the drive memory.
  9. Power off the drive, let the display go completely blank.
