1.5.4 to 1.6.0 > settings help

Hello. I've been using 1.5.4 for over a year but I would like to try 1.6.0.

I've spent about an hour trying to import all of my settings over to 1.6.0, but I am having no luck at all.

Is there a tutorial on how to do this? In XP in 1.5.4 the settings are all under User/Application Data/K-Meleon. In the beta, however, I do not understand where the user profile is loaded from.

If anyone can help it would be very appreciated.

I will probably have more questions to follow. Thank you.

@ Mister M

KM has two places where your profile can exist. You can find your profile folder by using EDIT - CONFIGURATION - PROFILE DIRECTORY.

User/Application Data/K-Meleon is one of the places. I, however, always keep my profile with the KM program. My current one is located at C:\Program Files\K-Meleon\Profiles\f6fqu4sq.default. Note that you must give yourself write authority to the folder if you put it with program files.

JamesD, thanks for your reply. I copied my backup user profile into the 1.6 profile directory. It appears to somewhat work, but nothing else does, unfortunately. I also copied my toolbars.cfg file into 1.6 as well. Unfortunately, I have no icons and essentially just a window with most of the options missing.

There is something major I obviously am missing, so I will just stick with 1.5.4.

Thanks for your help.

Maybe you use alternative skin with 1.5.4, and settings about that skin stored with profile.
