Your workflow is seriously broken if it depends upon monthly re-installs of the OS. Install your OS and all your software. Configure the software to your liking and make a bit-image backup of your drive. Rather than re-install the OS, restore the bit-image of your backup. This will be much faster that re-installing the OS and applications from scratch.
thank you for your response!
this I already know. but I still need to save only the settings from READER. as I was searching in options, there is no possibility to save settings from within READER.
