I have made a new, clean Windows install, but I'd like to copy over my Launchy settings from the old install. How can I do this?

Usually, the local Launchy data is stored under %AppData%/Launchy (you can enter exactly this string into a Windows Explorer address bar). launchy.ini is the file containing all of your settings, such as indexed folders and preferred matches for any ambiguous strings (such as if you've forced box to be used for VirtualBox instead of Dropbox).

The two icon cache folders and launchy.db/history.db are probably best left where they are, as Launchy will regenerate these anyway the next time you run it.
