Hello
I know that if one upgrades GST, you are given the opportunity to import the environment sets from the previous version.
However, we are changing our development devices and they will require a fresh GST install. Does anyone know of a way to export the environment sets from one desktop and import to another?

Thanks
Gary

Gary,

Have a look in %APPDATA%/FourJs or ~/.FourJs/   You should see a number of directories that have the Studio version / build number in them  (these directories are what you see in the Import dialog).  In each of them you will a series of files.  If you look inside the *.conf files (in particular generoStudio.conf and user.conf) you will see the information you are looking to preserve or reuse.  If using a remote connection, then you may need to look on remote server.  If you have multiple developers and are wanting consistency between your developers those are the files you might compare or edit ...

Key thing to note, Studio will read these files at startup and write to them when it is exits.  It does not necessarily write to these files as it makes changes.  You may have observed that if Studio or your PC crashes, your most recent list is not upto date, that is why.  What this means if you are going to read or edit these files, make sure that Studio is not running when you read or edit them.  Also make a backup before you start making any changes and take baby steps.
