Had to create a new Windows user profile. Can't login to old one. How do i transfer the WinSCP config settings from an inactive Windows user profile? (i.e., HKEY_Current_User is not where the settings are located; they are in a different, inactive Windows user profile).

All local profiles are under HKEY_USERS. Just look through them, finding the one that has Software/Martin Prikryl/WinSCP 2 key.

Another option is to extract the settings from the ntuser.dat file from the user's profile folder.
