Question about upgrading to new version
Posted: 09.08.2008, 06:50
Is there a way to keep all my customized settings when I upgrade to a new version? There are so many ways to configure FC that I forget everything I did between upgrades.
By the way FC is an extremely useful and well thought out program. There is rarely a case when I can't get it to do what I want. Thanks for developing such an excellent program.

Your settings are saved in the file "freecommander.ini" and your Shortcuts in the file "freecommander.shc".
Normally they are localized in you freecommander-install-folder.
You should allways have a safe copy of them.
For upgrading you can use the zip.file of the new freecommander version and extract the file to your freecommander-install-folder.
The settings will survive because the zip-file has no settings-files. Freecommander doesn't need an installation.
(zip-file at the bottom of http://www.freecommander.com/fc_u3_en.htm
I don't know if the setup-routine installs a new "freecommander.ini", but if it does so you have your safe copy of the settings-files to put them back.
Thanks for the quick reply!

I used the zip file as you suggested, and that took care of my problem.
I appreciate the quick help.
