VAW 2.0 Free Edition and XML Configuration

Is it possible to export configuration to XML file from VAW 2.0 Free Edition and import it on another machine with Free Edition enabled?
I'm able to export configuration but where I'm trying to import there's an error message:
Code: Select all
c:\Program Files\Veeam\Endpoint Backup>Veeam.Agent.Configurator.exe -import /f:C:\ProgramData\Veeam\Endpoint\!Configuration\Config_ks.xml
ExitCode: 4

Failed to perform the operation.
The configuration file you are trying to import does not match the product edition.

Both programs use same license version (Free).

Moreover, I can't reimport configuration on the same machine from which export was made.

Hello Krzysztof,

Import/export configuration function is available in the paid edition of the product.

Thank you!

Any other way to configure the software en masse? In the editions comparison, VAW Free lists the ability to silently install and upgrade. It is NOT clear one would not be able to configure the software during installation. An unconfigured silent installation is worth nothing. Boo.

The only supported way is via xml config file import which is available in workstation or server edition.
