2. Installed rules. These are already installed rules. They're kept in ReHIPS.xml file. These rules are valid for the PC they're installed to only and can't be moved to any other PC.
Just wondering is there a way to take my settings from the .xml file and put them in the default.rdb file?

You mean for example your set of rules for programs? The short answer is no.

You see, .rdb file contains more information which isn't stored in ReHIPS.xml. For example in .rdb file you can indicate that this program should be looked for in installed programs, take path from there and append file name like photoshop.exe. In .xml file it's just plain C:\Program Files\Photoshop\photoshop.exe and you have no idea where it was taken from. Even if you take that path as is, it'll fail on another PC where it's installed for example in C:\Program Files\Photoshop 10.0\photoshop.exe. So it's a one-way process, you can get .xml from .rdb, but not the other way.
