Here is an easy one. How can I transfer my D3 environment settings (editor choices, colors, etc.) from one machine to another? Is that all kept within the registry or is it saved in a config file somewhere?

You can find the settings in the registry.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Borland\Delphi\3.0\

You'll probably need to save both the Highlight and Editor key. And maybe some other?

Copy your saved keys to the new machine and open the registry editor again and restore the keys. You'll have to close Delphi before doing this. And you'll have to have the focus on the key you want to restore. If want to restore the Editor key, place the curser over Editor in the registry and then choose restore.

Hopefully this helps.

You can also double click on the Exported file in Explorer and it will auto Import the reg file into the registry of the target machine
