I have installed IDE 7.3 to a new directory; 6.2 is still installed in a separate directory as a fallback.

Apart from asking for a workspace, 7.3 seems to have inherited all my window placement, colours, fonts etc.
Including the activation details.
This is GOOD, but I had understood that parallel installations of the IDE were totally separate.

Where are these preferences saved, as I am about to update my Windows OS on a new hard disk;
I don't want to have to set all the preferences again as some of them are buried quite deeply in menus and are
not always in expected places. And I can't actually remember exactly what preferences I altered.

So, to be specific, what file or files hold the preferences, and what directory(ies) store the files.

Regards, Mike.
