When migrating to a new release, 5.4 to 5.6 in this case, it would be nice to keep prior preferences. In this case RT is being run in portable fashion on Windows as described here. The referenced article describes the folder named “mysettings”. However, it looks like the folder structure is different in 5.6 from what it was in 5.4. There is now an intermediate folder named “app” which seems to have the same content previously included in the main RT folder.
When first extracted 5.6 contains no folder named “mysettings”. When the “mysettings” folder was copied from 5.4 to the “app” sub-folder of 5.6 it seemed to have no effect when 5.6 is started.
Is there a recommended way to preserve preferences when migrating to a new release of RT?
