How to transfer all settings in Wine to Crossover?

I use Wine, and all configuration, settings and applications in Wine. I recently purchased Crossover Pro. I want to transfer all my wine environments easily without configuring and installing again. But how?

I'm not certain it's a good idea, since CrossOver does some custom configuration of its own bottles when they are created, which your WINEPREFIX won't have, but I think this should do what you want:

/opt/cxoffice/bin/cxbottle --bottle <new bottle name> --copy ~/.wine --install

Ken, a question/observation.

Running CXG, I think that I have noted that some of the "WINE" updates carry across all bottles.

I'm thinking of things like a registry edit...
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Wine/Direct3D
    DirectDrawRenderer  OpenGL

I believe that I have seen that value carry forward when creating new bottles, as well as across bottles.

Other changes, like the graphics/Vertex shader option via "wine config" control pannel appear to be unique to each bottle.

Is this a correct observation?

No, that's not correct.  I'm not sure what you're seeing, but bottles are independent from one another.  Registry changes in one don't affect the others.  And changes made in winecfg are registry changes.

There are some settings which can apply to CrossOver Games for an entire installation or for a user account.  Those are the settings in /opt/cxgames/etc/cxgames.conf or ~/cxgames/etc/cxgames.conf, depending on where you installed CrossOver Games, and ~/.cxgames/cxgames.conf.  However, those are not the same things as you're referring to.
