One of my favorite things about logging into Buzzsaw, is that it remembers my user name and password to all of the different Buzzsaw sites that I visit. Unfortunately when you get a new computer and reload Buzzsaw, that list is gone. For those of you who access multiple Buzzsaw sites, here is a trick that allows you to move the list from one computer to another.
Disclaimer: This involves editing your registry which can have dramatic (read: really bad) effects on your machine if you do it improperly. So please proceed with caution.
The information needed to load the login dialog box is located in two separate places on the old machine. You just need to get this information to the new machine.
1. The site names/urls are maintained in the registry
2. The usernames are maintained in the user.dat file on the hard disk.
So here is what you would have to do.
1. UPDATE THE REGISTRY
a. Start regedit on the old machine
b. export the key
to a .reg file. You do this by selecting the key above and executing File\Export. If you want to save all of your preferences then you could export the whole set of keys by exporting
c. copy the resulting .reg file to your new machine.
d. import the .reg file using regedit on the source machine.
2. COPY the ProjectPoint-7 directory from the old machine to the new machine.
This is usually found at:
C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Application Data\ProjectPoint-<version>
