The Settings.Dat File Viewing Tool

This is a simple but useful tool for checking some of the important settings contained within the encrypted Settings.dat file, this is especially useful when you want to compare something from this file with your outgoing traffic for analysis purposes.

You can obtain an English version of this tool from here

Once you run the program you will see this screen and will need to press the self explanatory button marked in green  

You will now need to navigate your way to your WinMX  folder in "Program Files"

Once you have selected the settings .dat folder you will be able to look over the information contained within it which includes your username ports favourite rooms and many other stored settings.

Whilst is obvious you wont be using this very often its another tool in your kit that will provide information, and thats always a good thing.
