Transfer resharper settings from old install?

I recently reinstalled Windows 7 in order to move from "Beta 1" to "RC1".  Of course I had to reinstall Visual Studio 2008 and Resharper 4.5 in this process.  Is there a way to restore all of the configuration settings for Resharper that were established in the previous OS install?  I have a backup of the previous OS partition, so I can get to any of the files that were used in the Windows 7-Beta 1 installation.

if you have a backup of your beta install just copy the <%userprofile%>\AppData\Roaming\Jetbrains folder to your new installation. This works fine for me.

I followed the suggestion in the previous post and copied the <%userprofile%>\AppData\Roaming\Jetbrains folder from the old installation to the new system.  However, the Resharper settings still do not match the settings in the previous install.  Is there something else that needs to be done in order for the settings to take effect?

as far as i know all personal R# settings are stored in the usersettings.xml under <%userprofile%>\AppData\Roaming\Jetbrains. For me copying this file from one installation to another worked all the time even if i used a xml file from an older R# version.

The colors for syntax highlighting are stored in the registry under the key

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\9.0\FontAndColors\{A27B4E24-A735-4D1D-B8E7-9716E1E3D8E0}

I'm not sure if the GUID is the same on all machines. But you can identify it because there are some entries with "Resharper..." beyond the key. An easy way is to store the color settings is the Visual Studio "Export Settings" functionality.
