Server Connections: Extract Entries without export-function

hulrich posted 4 months ago in Import/Export

Hi there!

is there any way to extract my saved server connections in the connection tab without actually starting Heidisql?

Background: I switched my harddrive and didnt export the old entries in advance. However, i do have full access to my old filesystem. Is there any way to get my old saved sessioninformation?

BR, Henning

Yes, I think you can. You will need the registry file in which Windows stored your user values (HKEY_CURRENT_USER). Then, grab some fitting freeware to open that file and export the key HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\HeidiSQL to some .reg file. Such a file can be imported by your current Windows installation (just doubleclick the file)
