Bulk editing putty configuration settings?

Hi Dag, I just found your excellent summary of settings after years of using putty; most of them I'd discovered one at a time over the ages - wish your guide had been around or I had seen it when I first started with putty on windows - editing the blue took me years to find! I recently exported the putty registry settings and imported to a new PC; all worked well until I went to check the logfiles... I discovered that the path under older windows no longer exists so nothing had been saved. I need to change the path of the logfile setting for all of my saved connections (probably 80 servers) and doing it one at a time is annoying. Anyone have a better way of editing these settings? Thanks!
