Cannot import Remote Desktop Connection Manager 2.7 file

Hi!

I'm evaluating mRemoteNG as a new manager for remote sessions for myself. I'd like to import my existing RDG file from Remote Desktop Connection Manager 2.7.

However, when I try, I get a message dialog like this:

---------------------------
Import failed
---------------------------
An error occurred while importing the file, "C:\Users\pvz\rdcman\import-test.rdg".
---------------------------
OK
---------------------------

What I've tried:

- Make sure the file is closed in Remote Desktop Connection Manager before attempting an import. Does not make a different.
- Making a "simple" import file to see if there's a problem with my bigger file. I have attached this "simple" file that fails to import here to my post. Unfortunately the forum does not permit .rdg files, so I added .txt to the filename.

Bump.

I am also having this problem - I am trying to shift all of my remote access sessions to mRemoteNG and one thing that is holding me back is not being able to import my RDPMan address book into it.
I'd rather not have to re-enter 100+ RDP sessions manually!!!

Can someone please take a look at this bug? Am happy to provide debug logs etc if needed.

Cheers

For reference, looks like this bug was reported here: https://github.com/mRemoteNG/mRemoteNG/issues/225
But it has been listed as a "Feature Request" - I would think this is incorrect, as it is an existing feature that has a bug... Therefore not a request.

I don't believe the importer was ever designed for importing RDCMan 2.7 files. The code indicates that v2.2 is the last RDCMan file version supported, which is probably why that ticket was marked as a feature request.

I'm not sure if RDCMan 2.7 files are significantly different from 2.2 files, we haven't looked into it yet.
