Re: ASCOM driver properties file?

There is a way to save and load settings (under the file menu, see “save settings as” and “load settings”).


I use this to switch between my two mounts.  Would it not also work to move the settings between two machines?

    Since this question about maintaining or recovering APCC Settings on changing PC’s etc.  has come up so often, perhaps there can be a command option to TRANSFER or IMPORT CURRENT APCC SETTINGS. I realize that given enough knowledge, it is already an easy task, but perhaps a specific command would simplify it.
