My HUD Doesn't Work


My HUD isn't working.




Holdem Manager's HUD requires 3 things to make it operational.

  1. Hand Histories must be saved from your Poker Client to your hard drive.
  2. Table Manager must be running.
  3. Holdem Manager must know where your Poker Clients Hand Histories are. (Auto Import Folders)


Note:  Make sure you have the latest version of Holdem Manager if your HUD is not working!

Note:  Make sure your poker client is the English poker client.  Also make sure your client is saving Hand History files in English.




Saving Hand Histories

Open your poker client and make sure it's saving English Hand Histories.  For specific information about your poker client, see the Getting Started/Poker Client part of the Holdem Manager FAQ. 



Table Manager

If Table Manager isn't running after you click Start Auto Import, chances are you are using Vista or Windows 7 and have a security issue.

  • Turning off UAC solves this most of the time. 

Vista UAC Help

Windows 7 UAC Help


  • You may need to uninstall other security software to get Table Manager running.


  • You may need to run HMHUD.exe as an Administrator.  (HMHUD.exe is the program that launches Table Manager.)


Table Manager is the Orange circle icon in your task tray.
