Recover my connections

heathclif posted 5 years ago in Installation
I had a lot ofr connectons saved in my HeidiSQL, and now, when I have reinstalled windows, I can not find them.

I have a large backup of all my old system, and I suppose that the connections (with all the data) are in "documents and seetings" but I can not find them


Where are stored the connections of Heidi SQL, please?

Thanks in advance.

Like the majority of Windows applications, HeidiSQL stores its settings in your registry. You can easily export and import them by clicking "File" > "Export settings" or "Import settings". Therefore, if you haven't exported them before you reinstalled Windows, you won't get them back now.

Probably you have a complete registry backup?

I have a copy of my my registry.

I will look for the needed section.

Thanks

Oh that's great. Just look at

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\HeidiSQL\


and export all keys, subkeys and values to your new registry.
