Hello there,
one old thing is to use an editor and to change these things via search and
replace in the vee files. YOu know that the .vee files are just text
Other thing is to delete  or rename the file where the "iopref" ? is saved.
When you restart your vee, it asked for the instruments to be named and
Or delete the instruments in your io-manager  and put it in again.

Sorry, can not give you any guarantee, as i do remember this from my brain

Hopefully someone else may give you 100 % proven answer...

I have run into the same problem. I assumed it was because when cut &
pasting Direct I/O, the I/O configuration doesn't follow, and in fact forces
the pasted direct I/O box into it's current configuration.

So what I did was form a basic I/O base program with all possible direct I/O
box configurations, and then copied & pasted other programs into this,
making he necessary conections after. This is very inefficient and annoying,
but I couldn' t find another way to do this. Furthermore, when I copied and
pasted the program into my I/O base, the panel view of the pasted program
didn't tag along, so I have to recreate my panel view.

If anybody knows a trick here, it would save me an enormous amount of time,
because I need to outfit dozens of programs to operate in several labs, all
with their own I/O configuration.
