Export/Import Button bar

Is there a way to export/import the button bar?

Is there a easy way to share the button bar whit my colleges?

Hi jchaves,

What version of SecureCRT are you using?

There is not presently a way to specify *just* the button bar for import/export.

I have added this thread to a feature request in our product enhancement database to add option to export/import just the button bar (XML). Should a future release of SecureCRT include this feature, notification will be posted here.

If you prefer direct email notification, send an email to and include "Feature Request - Forum Thread #13193" in the subject line or use this form from the support page of our website.

But you can share that specific file with your colleagues.

It will be found in the Config folder. The location of your installation's Configuration folder is found in the General / Configuration Paths category of SecureCRT's Global Options. (In older versions, it's just in the General category.)

In that folder should be a ButtonBarV#.ini file. The V# will depend on what version of SecureCRT. As of v8.3.x we were at ButtonBarV4.ini (in SecureCRT v8.5.x, it is ButtonBarV5.ini) and so anyone you share the file with is going to need to be in your same general version range.

They also may want to make a copy of their existing ButtonBarV#.ini file in case there are buttons they use on theirs that are not included in yours. :)

Hi SecureKomrad,

Yes! The button bar is included whether you choose to export your Global Options and/or Sessions!

Please refer to our YouTube video, "Move SecureCRT Config to a New Machine" :

Hi all,

The ability to export/import Button Bars specifically has been added to a pre-release version of SecureCRT. Please email if you would like to try it. Include "Button Bar Export" (or similar) in the subject line.

Also, if not writing us from the email address associated with your VanDyke Software download account, then please include that info in the body of the email. Your download account is how we make pre-release builds available. :)
