How to get back my Dreamweaver CS4 settings and sites

My old Vista computer died on me. I have a full backup however and a new machine with Windows 7.

I have installed Dreamweaver CS4 - but I'd really like to get back my old preferences and settings. And also my old site definitions if possible.

I saw a "Configuration" directory at C:\Users\**user**\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Dreamweaver CS4\en_US\Configuration. But when I copied that across, DW just renamed that "Configuration-1" and reverted to its defaults.

Any ideas?

The site definitions are stored in the registry and encrypted, so those are most likely gone for good unless you used DW's export function to make backups.

The config folder should be able to be copied over, although you may need to tell Vista to overwrite the existing folder.  If that doesn't work, copy/paste the files under the folder instead of the top level.

If you can, install your old hard drive in another computer and open Dreamweaver. Once open, you can go into 'Manage Sites' and use the 'Export' feature to export the XML file to a flash drive. Once you have that file you can then import your site settings onto the new computer.
