I've download and installed Finale to a new computer. Am I correctly remembering that I am condemned to spending a couple of hours setting up my various preferences and settings, rather than copying the finale.ini or some other file directly into the directory? Thanks.

When I was doing a lot of that at one time I saved copies of the data and midi device annotation folders and copied them over. Saved an enormous amount of time. If it's the same version and nothing has changed relatively, I don't see why you couldn't copy over the two ini files.

When I upgraded from XP to Windows 7 I copied the .ini files and all was fine. There are directories referenced in there, so you should make sure those exist on the new system.

Fingers crossed, I'll try it in the morning. Not enough brain left tonight.

Like a hot knife through butter. A beautiful thing. (Except I had to redirect all of the folder options, since the new hardware has a different "name." A very small burden.) Thanks again.
