How to backup/restore SharpCap settings?

Post by Sven_Bortle5 »

Hi,

I had to change my capturing notebook and so I'd like to copy my whole SharpCap configuration, sesnsor analysis data, etc. from my old to my new notebook. What's the best practice? Is there a list of files for doing this?

Thanks and regards,
Sven

Hi,

most of the settings are stored in the registry at

Code: Select all

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\AstroSharp Limited\SharpCap
You can use regedit to export these as a REG file and then import that on the new computer.

Capture profiles and sensor analysis results are stored in

Code: Select all

C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Roaming\SharpCap
And will just need to be copied over to the same location on the new computer.

Cheers, Robin
