Where does VS.NET store the custom toolbox items?

P: n/a
I stored many useful code snippets in Visual Studio.NET toolbox and need a
way to copy these items to a new Visual Studio instance. I would like to
know where they are stored..

Thanks,

That's a good question =)

I've never tried to do this, though I wish it could be done as well.

There's this file: <root>:\Documents and Settings\<yourid>\Local
Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\VisualStudio\7.1\toolbox.tbd

Looks promising. Let us know if that's the one =)
