How do I migrate totalcmd profile from one machine to another? Settings are stored in registry (unfortunately). I don't need exact copy, but the more settings survive, the better.

Most of the TC profile is actually stored in two INI files: wincmd.ini and wcx_ftp.ini.

To find those, check the Total Commander wiki. There are 6 possible places to look; I've usually found the files by checking these registry keys:

4) Look for the registry key value:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Ghisler\Total Commander\IniFileName

If it's not empty, this is the result. Overwise go to next step.

5) Look for the registry key value:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Ghisler\Total Commander\IniFileName

Usually, the other INI file will be in the same folder.

Also, your wincmd.key (license key file) would likely be in the program's directory; if not, check wincmd.ini for KeyPath=, this is the location of your license key file.

I know it's quite illegal if I talk about pirate version here. But you can find the portable Total commander at portableappz.xx ( find yourself ). If you have license key, you can replace exsisted one in the data folder. You can move it to everywhere :)

It's not piracy if you own the license key... but "portable Total Commander" doesn't answer the question. –  grawity Jun 21 '11 at 19:18
    
Total Commander can be made portable anyway. The option is there in the installer, and the settings can be kept in the program folder. There is no need to use a portable launcher with Total Commander. –  paradroid Jun 21 '11 at 19:23
    
@grawity: It can solve the problem if you download the pack I mention above, then put your data file in there. Everything will work fluently. @paranoid: Some of settings are stored in registry –  nXqd Jun 21 '11 at 19:45
    
The question is how to put the "data file" in "there". –  grawity Jun 21 '11 at 19:48
