Restore settings for a user-defined configuration

  1. Locate the saved registry file that contains the configuration settings in the <UFT_One_installdir>\dat folder on your computer. The file has a .reg extension. (The path for the dat folder in a typical installation is: %ProgramFiles%\OpenText\UFT One\dat.)

  3. Click Yes. A message opens confirming that the information was copied into the registry.

  4. Click OK. The settings in the saved file are restored.

    Tip: You can also restore the settings for a user-defined terminal emulator, if these settings were saved previously using the wizard. For details, see Completing the Terminal Emulator Configuration Wizard Page .
