putty upgrade query regarding defaulty sessions

anupli used Ask the Experts™
We are currently using putty version 0.50 and want to install new version Putty-0.7x.

Since there are multiple users approx. more than 500 users we are not sure how to export and import putty saved sessions for all users.

This server is having windows 2008 R2 and currently putty version installed is 0.50.

I would like to know if there is any way we can upgrade putty version and if yes whether it will saved sessions for all users.

You can just upgrade the version.

I'm using the putty.exe instead of msi installation. even I delete old version putty.exe and then downlad version 0.7 saved sessions are there.

you can keep both versions also by putting putty.exe to all users  C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs
if you need to export and import saved session, check following url

No, those sessions saved in user's session.

You just try in separate PC,

Put putty.exe version 5 and then save some session. logon as separate user in that PC and save some session and then download putty.exe v 0.7 to same PC and then open new putty.exe. your saved sessions all are there.

You have to use export import if you have to move putty to another PC.


Thanks for your prompt reply. I will check and let you know on this.
