Hi

WinGate 9 is a 64 bit app, so the registry key is just HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Qbik Software\WinGate

Normally the WinGate 9 installer will migrate old settings, but since you installed first it wouldn't have been there to migrate.

You can probably just run the WinGate 9 installer again. If that doesn't work, you may need to remove HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Qbik Software\WinGate first

Hi Adrien,

i modified my exported key to read the directory "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Qbik Software\WinGate" instead of ../Software/Wow6432node/Qbik Software and imported it on the new server.
i was able to view the IPs and the assumed users under rules. However, when i check under users, none of the assumed users is listed

Hi

the WinGate 6 assumed users was replaced by credential rules.

WinGate normally does a migration on this as part of the upgrade process, so if you're manually editing registry files, some of these steps won't happen.

You may need to go back to square one for this sorry, basically wipe WinGate 9, install WinGate 6, get your old settings in there, then re-install WinGate 9 so it can do the migration steps.
