- start regedit
- delete the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\HeidiSQL
- rename the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MySQL-Front to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\HeidiSQL
- start HeidiSQL

in fact you will lose some minor options by deleting the newer key, but your old server-registrations should be well working then.

Since I want to keep MySQL-Front2.5, an easier (and safer) way to import the server settings for HeidiSQL is to use the File/Export-Settings command in MySQL-Front..or use regedit to export the key branch

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MySQL-Front

naming it something like Mysql-Front_servers.reg.

Use Notepad to edit the reg file and remove the section
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MySQL-Front]

and then do a Edit-Replace of "MySQL-Front\Servers" with "HeidiSQL\Servers" and save the edited reg file.

Now you can use HeidiSQL command File/Import Settings to import the edited reg file with all the old server settings.
