Hi!

Is there a way to copy all FTP logins from UE to UEStudio?
Well, there are several options to define where the FTP accounts data are stored.

In UltraEdit v22.20 as well as in UEStudio v15.30 the FTP accounts data are stored by default in file FTPData.ini. This file is stored in directory %APPDATA%\IDMComp\UltraEdit respectively %APPDATA%\IDMComp\UEStudio. So copying this file from application data directory of UltraEdit to directory UEStudio is one option.

But it is also possible to share the FTP accounts data between UltraEdit, UEStudio and UltraCompare.

  1. Click in UltraEdit in menu Advanced on menu item Configuration.

  2. Click in tree on FTP, enable option Share FTP accounts and click on button OK.

  3. Confirm the question Would you like to merge your current FTP accounts into the shared FTP accounts list?  with a click on button Yes.

  4. Click in UEStudio in menu Advanced on menu item Configuration.

  5. Click in tree on FTP, enable option Share FTP accounts and click on button OK.

  6. Confirm the question Would you like to merge your current FTP accounts into the shared FTP accounts list?  with a click on button No.
And the third option can be also selected at Advanced - Configuration - FTP if option Share FTP accounts is not checked. There is setting Store FTP accounts and settings in user selected file. Therefore the file %APPDATA%\IDMComp\UltraEdit\FTPData.ini could be copied to a directory of your choice and could be named as you like it. Then select this file in FTP configuration dialog in UEStudio.

Damn. I did it on both site. Now the FTP logins are not transfered anymore.

I use the same FTPData.ini for both programs. Now it is working.

Thanks.
It is possible to copy the data from FTPData.ini of UltraEdit or UEStudio to %APPDATA%\IDMComp\Common\FTP Accounts\IdmFTPAccounts.txt by using the following steps even if option Share FTP accounts is enabled already and merge was not done on prompt.

This step by step instruction is for FTP accounts data stored in FTPData.ini of UltraEdit:

  1. Start UltraEdit, uncheck Share FTP accounts at Advanced - Configuration - FTP, close configuration with OK and exit UltraEdit with Alt+F4.

  2. Open with UEStudio or Windows Notepad the INI file of UltraEdit while no instance of 32-bit or 64-bit UltraEdit is running:

    %APPDATA%\IDMComp\UltraEdit\uedit32.ini

    or

    %APPDATA%\IDMComp\UltraEdit\uedit64.ini

  3. Search for Prompt Merge=1 and replace it with Prompt Merge=0 which is in section [Settings].

  4. Save modified INI file of UltraEdit and exit UEStudio or Notepad.

  5. Start UltraEdit and verify with a click on File - FTP - FTP Account Manager if the dialog lists your accounts stored in FTPData.ini.

  6. Open Advanced - Configuration - FTP, check option Share FTP accounts, close configuration with OK and this time click on Yes.
Now the data from FTPData.ini are copied to IdmFTPAccounts.txt.

ATTENTION: Don't overwrite file IdmFTPAccounts.txt with file FTPData.ini as this does not work. (Storage format is different.)
