Importing syntax coloring configuration

Hi,

I'm trying to import the syntax coloring settings I set on another
installation of Visual Studio .NET, but I can't find any configuration
file or option to achieve this. How can this be done ?

Thank you for your help.

Hello Nicolas,

The fonts and colors are not stored in a config file, at least not in VS2002/2003. They are stored in the registry at:

\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio \7.0\FontAndColors\

(Note 7.0 for vs2002 or 7.1 for vs2003)

If you export that registry key and import that reg file in the other computer you want to give the settings to it will work. That is how I have done it in the past.

Thanks, Wes. This is what I was looking for.

If anyone with any influence reads this, it would be nice to have an
Import and Export button in the Options dialog for this.

I'm not aware of a _single_ version of the MS compiler/IDE line that would
transfer user settings from one version to the next.

Apparently Microsoft feels that user settings and their design guidelines only
apply to companies /other/ than Microsoft.
