Hello nyisls,

The instructions below are for SecureCRT versions 5.x and later.

To copy your SecureCRT configuration information from one computer to another, follow these steps:
  1. Install SecureCRT on the new (destination) computer, and run it. Take note of the "Configuration folder" location as specified in Options / Global Options / General.
  2. On the source computer, open the Global Options dialog and navigate to the General category and make a note of the path indicated in the Configuration folder field. The configuration folder is set the first time SecureCRT is run after installation. If you choose the default location when running SecureCRT for the first time after installation, the configuration folder will likely be as follows: C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\VanDyke\Config
  3. Close all instances of SecureCRT on both the source and the destination computers.
  4. Copy the contents (including sub-folders) of the Configuration folder on the old computer to the Configuration folder on the new computer.
Using the above instructions, are you able to successfully move your configuration to the new computer?
