Is there a easy way to copy saved hosts?

I am working on upgrading to V19 from 18 and I am wondering if there is a way to transfer all my saved hosts from the 18 client to 19? I have always just remade them but each time I upgrade the list of saved hosts is growing. It would be nice if there was a file I could copy over.

My guess is that this is information is stored in different places for Windows and MacOS.

I googled for "filemaker "saved hosts" where", found this Claris Community (English), which pointed to FileMakerPKB

Note the last link points to very old information - as usual without a date - talking about FileMaker 10. But maybe this can help you find where these are now found.


Thanks for the response. I should have said it was for windows. That link for sure looks like worth looking into I will report back if it works out.

It's in the registry, under the "current user" hive:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\FileMaker\FileMaker Pro Advanced\18.0\FavHostInfo

So be a little careful if you are not familiar with the registry

The document is still correct. On my tower running Windows 10, this is what I found under Ordinateur\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\FileMaker\FileMaker Pro Advanced\17.0\FavHostInfo\Entry0


This is for version 17, my guess is that it is still Ok for 18 and 19 !
