Saving settings

Post by vikelj » Wed Jan 30, 2019 1:20 pm

I have two laptops. I want to know where the settings are stored so that I can copy them to both laptops.
Thanks
Jim

Sorry about missing this question.

The capture profiles are stored in

Code: Select all

C:\Users\<your user name>\AppData\Roaming\SharpCap\CaptureProfiles
Just copy the files you find there to the same location on your new PC.

The other settings are stored in the registry. You can save them to a .reg file using the command prompt and running

Code: Select all

reg export "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\AstroSharp Limited\SharpCap\3.2" sharpcap.reg
Copy the reg file to the new computer and then run

Code: Select all

reg import sharpcap.reg
Note that a SharpCap pro license will not be transferred by this method - you will need to re-enter it on the new computer.

Hope this helps, Robin

Thanks, Robin.

I ended up just taking screenshots of all of the panels and settings screens and doing it the hard way. This way should be much easier!

I've searched that location without success. What file suffix do the files have so I can search the computer drive using file name "*.ending"?

Hi,

The capture profiles are saved as .INI files – there will be at the very least some called '_autosave (<camera name>).ini'. One of these is created for each camera that you use to save the settings when you shut down or close the camera and restore them the next time you use it.

Hope this helps, Robin
