I use REW with multible HW compilations - with various computers, operating systems, soundcards, mics, DACs, etc. With HDMI, USB. With ASIO, Java. With USB mics and phantom biased mics.
I often teach fellow hoppyists in how to use REW. REW keeps the last preferences and uses them in the next startup, but haven't noticed any way to save/load manually different setups, or load the ones I use to a friend's REW environment. Is there any way to do it? This includes e.g. all the graphic scales, curve colors, etc.
During over 10 years of using REW and over 4000 stored measurements I have propably spent tens of hours trying to sort out various issues with drivers and setups. Of course not all the issues have been REW related. But anyway, it would be convenient to be able to always start with known working REW preferences.

There isn't a way to do that from REW yet, though it is on the todo list. If you are on Windows all the preferences are in one registry key,
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\JavaSoft\Prefs\room eq wizard, so in principle that key could be exported and imported on another system. Practically that is likely to be difficult since registry export attachments are blocked by many email applications.

Ok. Thank you! I'll probably wait for the "official" way.
