Cannot figure out how to import a WinSCP.ini file into a new computer (version 4.3.9)

I have the WinSCP.ini exported from my old computer, but I can't seem to find an import option in version 4.3.9 of WinSCP. Off the Tools menu on the Stored sessions, there's an Import button, but that only permits you to import from Putty. Can anybody help. I know I can start WinSCP with "/init=<path to WinSCP.ini>, but that applies only to that session, and the information is lost once I start WinSCP normally. I tried adding the "/init" to the command behind the desktop and start icons, but my machine is tightly locked down and I'm not allowed to do that.

Thanks, Keith

You should not use 4.3.9 in the first place.

Anyway, once you start WinSCP with /ini=... (not /init=...), go to Preferences > Storage and switch to Windows registry. That will import the INI file (and remove it!).
