Move to new computer
« on: May 26, 2009, 11:28:07 AM »
Finally broke down and built a new computer.  Just wondering if there are any shortcuts or "gotchas" I need to be aware of when moving PM and support files.  I'll be running 64-bit Vista.  I plan to install PM and move keyword and settings files.  I can install 32-bit XP Pro and dual boot if PM works better with 32-bit OS.

Thanks all.

Woodie,

Just use the new Export and Import buttons in the Preferences dialog of the 4.6.2 beta 8 version of Photo Mechanic.  It should work fine.

Worked perfectly!  Wish all apps had a feature like this.
