Export Putty Session List

I don’t know about you, but I tend to work from a number of different computers, most of them Windows based devices. Having to remember everything for all my Linux servers can become a bit overwhelming, and when the time comes that I have to either migrate system settings or configure a new device, Putty settings is always something that seems to get lost in transition. With a little search and destroy, I found a way to easily migrate your Putty Session list for import on another device.

  • First, you need to open a command prompt with escalated privileges. Simply Right Click and Choose Run as Administrator
  • at the command prompt, type the following:
    • For only sessions: regedit /e "%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\putty-sessions.reg" HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SimonTatham\PuTTY\Sessions
    • For all settings: regedit /e "%USERPROFILE%\Desktop\putty.reg" HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SimonTatham
  • To import, simply copy it to the new machine and double click the .reg file.

That’s All, Enjoy!

One of his most important applications decided it wasn't going to cooperate. QuickBooks hit us with an error, specifically "Could not initialize license properties. [Error 3371, Status Code -11118] ".
