Moving to different computer

edited November -1 in General Discussion

I need to transfer to a different computer.  Is there a way to get all of my songs transfered to the other computer once I get  Openlp installed on the newer computer?  I have downloaded several songs from ccli and have edited a lot of songs that I do not want to loose.

    If you are using Ubuntu then the settings are stored in /home/username/.local/share/openlp with the songs in songs/songs.sqlite

    If you are using Windows then I do not know but they could be in your Application data folder, Vista: C:/Users/Username/AppData XP: C:/Documents and Settings/Username/Application Data

    You can then copy this folder, or just the bits you want, into the appropriate folder on your new computer.

    If talking about v1.2.4 then please see this post

    No I do not use Ubuntu.  The original computer is Vista and for the moment I need to transfer to a computer running XP.

    Thanks for trying to help.  I will look around at the setting locations you suggested to see if that is where they are located.

    And yes I am using 1.2.4. I looked at the post link and printed it out.  So between both of you who responded I am hoping to figure it out.

    Or you could just export the songs from the File menu in openlp then on your new machine just delete all the existing/installed songs and import your songs from the exported file.

    The Vista location for the program data is in a hidden folder:

    C:\program data\

    In order to see it you will have to set folder options to "show hidden files and folders"
