Profile exporter tool
« on: March 26, 2012, 01:49:23 pm »
Hi all!
I'd suggest a new feauture (or maybe a plug-in) for Code::Blocks.
It's a bad idea to create something that allow, using a menu or a wizard, to export all Code::Blocks settings (including the perspective)? And, of course, something that can import these settings in a new installation of Code::Blocks.

I think that it's really boring to set up my Code::Blocks each time I format my pc (not to mention that I don't remember all settings...).

Thanks.

Haven't you heard about the tool cb_share_config?

On your hard drive probably, next to codeblocks.exe or codeblocks? :)

I know nothing about your system, so I guess it is normal. Probably say what you have and what you've used to install C::B can shed some light.

I use Windows 7 ultimate 64bit, and I installed this:
codeblocks-10.05mingw-setup.exe
chosing as setup settings just the plugins to install (all plugins).
So, I think to have something like a full installation.

And you don't have cb_share_config.exe on you hard drive?
I guess your installation is broken.

I tried to search it with the Windows Search Tool, and nothing, there isn't...
I have to reinstall?

Are you sure the index is up-to-date?

It might not be installed in default installation.
You should rerun the installer and make sure it is selected for installation.
I'm not on windows, so I can not tell you which option to chose.

Ok, I have reinstalled it and now I found cb_share_config...
Now I have to understand how it works, it seems not so easy. Any help?

You're joking, aren't you?
As far as I can see there is an explanation at the top of the tool's main window.
Have you read it?!

Of course. But I haven't understood what is the "configuration file" and where I can fine one if it's the first time that I use cb_share_config...

But I haven't understood what is the "configuration file"
Your Code::Blocks configuration file, usually named default.conf unless you are using personalities. By default it is in %APPDATA%\codeblocks under Windows, and in ~\.codeblocks under Linux.

where I can fine one if it's the first time that I use cb_share_config...
If you didn't start C::B yet then there is no configuration file yet.

As the tool is named cb_share_config and in case you have no config then there is nothing to share, so the tool is of no help.
