I am setting up a new computer and have downloaded Chief X12. What is the best way to transfer all my data, libraries and templates? Also how to I load all the bonus content, can it be transferred or do I have to download each library again from Chief website? FYI when I installed Chief it didn't create an X12 data folder so I copied it from my old computer. I also have the downloaded libraries in my download folder so I could copy them and open them one at a time I suppose. I just don't want to have a zillion duplicate files and textures like I have had in the past when migrating upgrades. Thanks

Thanks, I have everything backed up and copied to the new computer so I'll see if I can get everything installed. How do I save my profile? it won't let me save in the templates location like older versions used to. In X12 I had to recreate my profile (res. template) but now do I have to do it again? Thanks

If you go to Preferences > Folders > All Program Paths: > Show... 

 

You will find all the file paths listed.   You are looking for  "User Template Folder"   I think.

Purchase Zinstall.exe

 

It's the easiest way to transfer anything/everything from one computer to another.  But it only works for Windows computers - not for MACs

      Hi There,
      New to Chief, my question is when creating a solarium or anything else like a timber frame pergola which takes a fair amount of work!
      Would it be best to import as an Template or Create a Layer Set? 
       
      Any advice would be appreciated,
      John
