Where is iProFiler configuration stored?

Updated by Bryan Jones


This document describes the storage location for iProfiler settings and how to export them.


Customers will often ask if there is an easy way to copy iProfiler settings from one computer to another. All iProfiler settings are stored in the Windows Registry. While it's not an easy way, it can be accomplished by copying the settings from the registry of one machine and importing them to the other.

Registry settings are different between 32 and 64-bit versions of Windows. This will not work if copying from a 32-bit version to a 64-bit version. In 64-bit Windows, the files are kept in the WOW6432Node registry key which does not exist on 32-bit versions of Windows.

For purposes of this document, we will assume you some familiarity with the Windows Registry Editor and sufficient permission to run the Editor program.

Please note, we do not provide support for configuration by hand-editing the registry. This is provided for informational purposes only. We will not be able to assist you with any manual changes to these registry settings. Only configuration by use of the provided User Interface is supported.

  • Config - contains specific pin configurations for the GPIONodes
All of the following are maintained at;
