Cant import options ini from V7

V7: Tools / export options = writes ini file

V8: tools / import options = appears to eat the file, displays options as to what to select, select all = “specified file is not a valid options file”

This is a similar problem to 6 years ago when going from V5 to V6 (another thread I revived a day ago)
Surely this has been addressed by now?

Otherwise, please advise how we are supposed to bring in all the individual customization’s we might have from V7?
