    Moving CAMBAM to a new PC?

    I'm migrating over to a new computer and need to move CAMBAM while keeping all my styles etc intact. What is the best way?

    Old PC was XP pro, new is Win7-64 professional. I have about 10 days left of having both computers fully functional.

    Cheers

    I don't work with CamBam myself, but just a quick browse to help you out:

    Your license file is called CamBamPro.lic and should be located in the same folder that CamBam is installed in.

    This is usually...

    C:\Program Files\CamBam plus 0.9.8

    You just need to copy this file into the CamBam folder on the new machine.

    I've had a browse about on my PC and have found relevant looking files in the C:\Program Data\CamBam plus 0.9.8\ folders there are subfolders under here that seem to contain the sytle definitions, tool libraries etc.

    Thanks guys

    I had to find and copy the .xml standards files from the allusers/application data directory on the xp machine to the equivalent program data/cambam directory on the win7 machine.

    All my styles are now there.:cheers:
