Moving AB settings from one computer to another?

Post by mudshark » Thu Aug 14, 2003 1:37 am

I am switching computers and have AB installed on my old and new computers, and was wondering if there was a way to export the program settings for AB.  I want to do this specifically because of how AB handles the ordering of favorites.  AB resorts favorites the first time it starts up, and I want to preserve the order of my bajillion bookmarks that I already sorted in AB on my previous computer.  Is there some file I can just copy over, or do I have to resort everything again?  If i have to resort everything again, could you provide some more insight as why this is the case? (like how does AB store the order of favorites, in the registry, a file, etc...)

Both computers are Win2k SP4 if that makes a difference.

Thanks.

Looks like those setting are in C://Windows/Application Data/Avant Browser/

I think you can just copy and move those files and maintain everything. I would wait for one of the mods to confirm this though.

as bigc said, it's in c:\documents and settings\username\application data\avant browser...the file you want is abrowser.ini. Try it and let us know how it goes.
