Copy custom commands & toolbars to another PC

Using Act 2000 on Windows 7

I've setup several custom buttons and some toolbars.  Where do those get saved?  They seem to be profile specific.  I'd like to copy them to other PCs with Act 2000.

 

Any help would be great.

Re: Copy custom commands & toolbars to another PC

Found it !

Export/import these 3 keys....

 

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Symantec\ACT!\TBarMenuConfig\ACT!\CustomCommands

HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-760804570-3751304640-1698983407-1221\Software\Symantec\ACT!\TBarMenuConfig\ACT!\CustomCommands

HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-760804570-3751304640-1698983407-1221\Software\Symantec\ACT!\TBarMenuConfig\ACT!\ActToolBars-Bar11

 

The last one might be dependent on where you place your customer command buttons.

 

Thanks for the clues.

If I remember correct, and this is an old memory, that information is stored in the Windows registry but I don't remember the specific location.

This kb tells how to do it from Act! 2005 and newer http://kb.act.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/18313/

I don't know where or how you'd do it for Act! 2000.

Searched the registry for one of the commands I setup for a custom command button.  Didn't find anything.

You likely wouldn't find it with a search like that. I do remember that the ACT! keys were under the main symantic key.
