Slight addition to the info above.

If you want to import your R65 config to an R70 installation, you need to use the R70 upgrade_export tool, ie copy from R70 CD and then you can specify this as the import file.

The reason being is that each version ahs different requirements and settings for what it saves and in which format.  If we want to import to a different version, then we must use the export tool from that version before it will be supported.

Needless to say, exporting from an R65 system using the R65 export tools may succeed when you import to an R70 system, but sadly it will not be supported and you are likely to have issues down the line.

I have attached the R70.20 upgrade guide for info
