How to move Tectia Client settings from existing Windows machine to a new Windows box in the event of a system upgrade, getting a new PC, etc.?

You may have the need on occasion to copy or transfer their existing Tectia Client configuration from an old Windows PC to a new or different Windows PC, especially in the event of a system upgrade, the acquisition of a new PC, etc. This is especially true if the customer is limited by number of licensed copies of the Tectia software. Hre we provide instructions for copying the existing configuration from one machine to another in a Windows environment.
When transferring your Tectia Client (Broker) files from one Windows machine to another Windows machine, follow these instructions:
Installing a new SSH Tectia Client
Install SSH Tectia software to the new client host according to the installation instructions. If you still have your Tectia installation files, you can install using the same installation executable but you will, of course, need to copy that from the old Windows machine to the new system. If you are still able to install the Tectia software, you can then copy the following files to the corresponding location on the new Windows system.
Copy the following files from the old client host to the new host by replacing any existing default files created in the installation process.
The global Connection Broker configuration file (If you are using one): "<INSTALLDIR>\SSH Tectia Broker\ssh-broker-config.xml"
The user-specific configurations stored in the following directories need to be copied as well:
By default, %USERPROFILE% expands to "C:\Documents and Settings\<username>" on pre-Vista Windows versions and defaults to "C:\Users\<username>" on Windows Vista
If you want all Tectia Client files you can copy everything in the following directory. "%USERPROFILE%\Application Data\SSH" on pre-Vista Windows versions and "C:\Users\<username>\AppData\Roaming\SSH" on Windows Vista machines.
One reason to do this is there may be files such as customized keymap files or CA certificates in this directory that wouldn't be listed in the details listing below If you have created any custom key maps files, have certs, or keys out side of the default directory (%USERPROFILE%\Application Data\SSH) you will want to move those also.
If you would like to copy only some or the bare minimum of the files required please see the detailed listing below:
