My installation disk is damaged, how can I transfer all my Cardbox stuff from my old to my new laptop? Is it possible to copy the Cardbox folder at C:\Cardbox to a disk and then paste it into the same location on my new computer??

I am using Version 2.0.

I have managed to copy the folder over and the program seems to work fine now but now need to export/import the database info from the old pc to the new computer. I've had a look at the manual but I can't see an export or import function. Is there a simple way to achieve this??

Copy entire programfolder on same location as your old pc
run after this the setup of last version of 2.0 which you can download on http://www.cardbox.com/downloading/other/cardbox2.htm#program
install all features in the 'restored folder'

I think there is another item that needs moving - the directories where Cardbox keeps the macros. I know I have a bad problem because for another reason I have more tan one database with identical names but in different directories and I got into bad trouble trying to keep the macros linked.

Problem now sorted. The user (who I am asking for) sorted it out by following the advice here, thanks..
