    Default System settings file

    I can not remember the name of the file/files that contain the info in "View->Settings->System."
    (For transferring the system settings from on version to another....anyone..?)
    Thanks

    I don't believe there is a file that contains this information.

    You might want to take a look at this registry setting though:
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Alpha Software\Alpha Anywhere 12.0\preferences

    When I upgraded from V8 to V9 Cian gave me the file name(s) which worked. Perhaps there might not be such for V11 to V12.
    Thanks

    Settings are stored in the registry in Alpha Anywhere.

    Hi Sarah,
    I don't believe your offering lends the assistance James is seeking.

    I believe James is looking to migrate from a lower version of Alpha to a current version of Alpha and would like all the system customization he did in his lower version to be able to apply it to his newer version. For example, I have completely customized the colors and look of the display of the code in the code editor. I am now migrating from v11 to v12 and want to migrate the look of my code editor I had in my v11 so in my v12 it is as I worked so hard to get it to look in my v11. Where is that and how do I execute setting up my v12 with these system settings I had in my v11. Similar to migrating code library, maybe.

    Thanks Mike,
    I guess i should have been more specific. They reply that Tim and Beta is gave is actually correct. The registry does contain the settings for the tree View-Settings-System.
    What I wanted was said files that contained the settings for View-Settings-System-System Colors-Categories and View-Settings-System-System Colors-Categories.
    Like you said to migrate the settings from V11 to V12 desktop.

    The Registry object has several methods for setting/loading Registry settings. See https://documentation.alphasoftware....stry%20methods

    E.g.

    Code:
    dim prefs as P
    registry.load_settings("preferences",prefs)
    showvar(prefs)
