Importing Opera 12 settings into Opera 18

  • Ok, i can find guides on how to Import if i am installing opera 18 in place of Opera 12, but as I want both Operas on my system while I evaluate Opera 18, how do i pull the settings across?

    And yes i understand Opera 18 is different etc and i lose Mail, RSS and Dragonfly (3 of my main reasons for sticking with 12), but well for general use it seems fine and add-ons for RSS sounds OK

    Cheers

  • I can't work out how to get the profile importer to start, and the import bookmarks thingie is greyed out

    I have read that if opera 12s paths aren't standard opera 18 can't find it, but from what i can tell below the paths seem right-ish

    Opera 12 paths
    Paths
    Preferences
    C:\Users\noodlesoup\AppData\Roaming\Opera\Opera64\operaprefs.ini
    Saved session

  • Ok, using the info in this post
    http://my.opera.com/community/forums/topic.dml?id=1765432&t=1385768814&page=1#comment14809222

    helped a lot, the only issue was that i don't have a /profile folder so i had to locate my roaming folder

    So for me the below command worked

    "C:\Program Files (x86)\Opera Next\launcher.exe" --presto-small-prefs-dir="C:\Users\noodlesoup\AppData\Roaming\Opera\Opera64"
