Plugins parameter settings backup.

Question

I have a plan that upgrade Windows 7 to 10. So I'd like to clarify the backup of the plugin settings.

I know VST plugins presets and settings are saved to their folders for each plugins so it's OK.
But I believe Cakewalk also saves plugins parameter settings when saving project. Are those settings contained in project.cwp file? or some other specific folder?
I'm assuming that might be %AppData%\Cakewalk\Shared Presets\

Thanks @scook
I can see some files (those are named some preset names which is used in VST plugins, I guess) under %AppData%\Cakewalk\Shared Presets\
What's this? These are not plugin settings?
Maybe... preset name which is saved in plugins GUI header part?

There is an export/import process in the plug-in manager to handle them.

Ah, I didn't know that export/import process. Thank you!
But it seems have to do one by one per plugin. It would be nice that could export/import at once for all plugin presets what we made.

Yes, it would.

I suppose one could save the "Shared Presets" folder and export HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Cakewalk Music Software\ActiveMovie\Presets then try to integrate them into a new install or write a script to build the registry present entries from the contents of the shared presets folder. Either method may need to deal with the non-plug-in entries in the shared presets and the registry.
