    [Solved & Fixed] identity import from mac to windows

    Hello, I tried to export my identity from my mac and import it to my windows computer.

    this did not work, is there any solution other than make a new identity on the windows computer ?

    Its weird that it doesn't work, but here's how you could do it: Go to the client folder in the mac (wherever it is ) and search for "ts3clientui_qt.secrets.conf" (if you don't find it in there, better just search the whole drive). Then, create a "something.ini" file according to the following (without the ()'s):
    id=(identity name)
    nickname=(identity nickname)
    Now, all you have to do is import it in windows.

    Importing an ID on Windows which was exported from Mac actually works. But I suppose I see your problem: Mac exports the file without the ".ini" suffix while Windows expects *.ini files in the import dialog.

    Guess I should a) add the .ini suffix to the Mac exported file and b) allow Windows to import "Any file" in addition to "Ini files" in the import file dialog.

    As a quick workaround, rename the file exported on Mac and add the .ini suffix.

    e.g I exported "myid" on Mac, copied this over to Windows, renamed the file to "myid.ini" and successfully imported it on Windows.

    .ini will be added automatically by client in next client release.
