: Mark:
: I've been running FM on two desktops @ two locations, using a Zip Disk to copy & transport the MY DATA Folder with all .dat & .mm4 settings. Works fine. Recently I had to reinstall FM on one computer, input registering info and update the MY DATA Folder. I've got every thing I need except for personal settings such as saved Reports. Is there another file I should be transporting, containing FM personal preferences and settings ?
: Thanks

Hi Jim,

Yes, many of your preferences such as category labels and memorized reports
are stored in your registry at:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Beiley Software\Fund Manager\CurrentVersion

You can use "regedit" to export/import this registry location from your
old to your new computer. If you copy this whole key you'll want to run
the installation program afterwards to update specific items for this
installation, like the location of installation under the "directory
locations" sub-key.
