Hi, I had to set up a new machine for working and would like to Transfer all Connections to the newly installed HeidiSQL.
Is there a way?
Thx

Yes. In your old installation, just click "File" > "Export setting" and chose a text file. In the new installation, select that file after clicking the "import" button on the blank session manager. (or, if you already created a session, than use File > Import settings)

Hi, I don't have a "File" menu or an "import" button that I have been able to find anywhere. Is there a folder or file I can copy and move?
Thanks very much!
David

To update that... Those things aren't in the session manager, and don't appear until you open a session. When the session with a specific database is open, you can then follow the steps (File >Export or File >Import) and it exports or imports the settings for all session names -- not just the one you are using.

When you're using the latest version, you have a "More" button on the bottom right of the session manager. There you will find import and export menu items.

Hi.

My pc died but I've saved the old harddrive. There is any chance to recover those connection???

Yes, if you have access to your old "NTUSER.DAT" file.

See this thread for a way to do that. You will need to download RegFileExport.
