Hi all,

Due to a hardware (or possibly windows corruption issue), I've had to clean install Windows to a new HDD and reinstall programs from scratch. As part of this process, I have to reinstall GenoPro but I'd like to recover the configuration settings I had from before if at all possible. I'm hoping I can recover these from backups and/or direct access of my old HDD. Can anyone point me in the right direction as to where I can find my old settings so I can reinstate them on my new HDD? Many thanks.

Martin

GenoPro settings are held in the Windows Registry under Key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\DanMorin.com\GenoPro

If you can still run Windows on the old HDD thrn you could run RegEdit to export that key and then import on to your new Hdd, otherwise you will need to get the registry file NTUSER.DAT from your old user profile folder and then use RegEdit File/Load Hive to acccess that key and move the data accross.

Oh great, that's very useful. I should be able to access my old Windows Registry and export the settings. Fingers crossed...

Many thanks!
