Ive used your program and am a happy camper with it. However i recently purchased a new computer, and would like to take my old data files and copy them from the old to the new. Its a brand new installation of GigAlarms on win 7 (64 bit). Can you tell me exactly what files i have to copy and what folder to install them in?

Thanks For Your Help.

John

It's quite easy actually. To show the directory you open the "About" window by the "About" button, select "Prog Dirs" from the selection box at the bottom and press "Open Dirs". Everything in the folder that doesn't have "GigAlarm.exe" in it are user settings.

You can find more details here.

TY, but I think all i did was reinstall the latest version on my new puter, then copied the alarms folder (contains all my files used for alarms) and the "s" & "d" gigalm files to this new directory. Works like a charm.
It saved all my settings and alarms.
TY Anyway
