Import settings
« on: October 14, 2010, 05:58:23 pm »
Hello there,

I want to update from Codeblocks 8 to 10, but I want to keep my settings (syntax highlights colours, etc). What can I do to achieve that?

 :lol:

Anyone?
Use the cb_share_config tool available from SVN.
Compiler logging: Settings->Compiler & Debugger->tab "Other"->Compiler logging="Full command line"

Yes, plenty of people, but I am quite sure no one feels like answering something that you can find by "Googling".

Did you even look in the CB install folder for cb_share_config.exe? Not sure if Code::Blocks normal install has it or not.

Also, when people post in the wrong sub-forum they are more likely to be ignored.

Thanks for your reply. I can't find any cb_share_config.exe in the CB folder. Also I don't really think it's a wrong section to post this, since I ask for help.

Did you read (carefully) the sticky posts at the top of the subforum ?

I can answer it myself, you clearly did not, or you did not understand them.

Some or maybe almost all Nightly Builds have the file cb_share_config.exe.

I only tested CB_20100522_rev6271_win32.7z and CB_20100925_rev6634_win32.7z

By the way, as far as I know, it should be possible to update from C::B 8.02 to 10.05 without losing settings, but you should back up the default.conf to be sure.
