Is there a procedure to import all the settings and connection from beta 2.7?
When you install a new build it should look for all prior installs and ask you if you want to migrate settings. Choose yes, and it will copy over all of these files. If for some reason you missed the prompt and canceled, you can still copy over these files manually.
To do so go to a directory similiar to this. (Change profile name)
C:\Documents and Settings\dpeabody\Application Data\Quest Software\Toad for Data Analysts Beta 2.7
and copy over all of the files. Make sure you have the new Beta shut down. Otherwise it will write on top of the files.
if you only need to import the connections, I would use the import connections button on the top of the navigation manager.
