SecureFX Config Import Confusion

I ran into a little quirk that may confuse peopele a bit...

I imported by CRT configs into FX to save time. When I open FX it brings up the connect dialog with the list of my connections from CRT. The problem is when you double click on the connection, it brings up a terminal session. The configuration information in the connect dialog does not contain the file transfer information, so it defaults to brining up a terminal session. It didn't take long to figure out, but it might be frustrating for newer users (or the admins for the newer users ) . You might want to have FX look for file transfer info in the config before using it the first time and pop a dialog to the user to configure this. Both 4.1 copied configs and newly created 5.0 configs from CRT leave the file transfer info out, so it's nothing specifically caused by older configs.

Thanks for the feedback. As of the latest alpha, there is a wizard that will take care of migrating and integrating the configuration information. Unfortunately, this doesn't help alpha testers who have already run the new versions.
