transferring setting from one system to another

Post by Dcislander » Thu Feb 07, 2008 11:33 pm

OK... here's a question that seems simple, but I cannot find the answer anywhere. My Tiger OS MacBookPro died on me and Apple replaced the entire system (that is good) with a new one running Leopard. Prior to sending the old one back I made a cone of the HD.

I now have the new comp and downloaded Max r1337. My question is:

Is there a way to pull all of my Max settings from the old HD clone into the new computer? Issues I see: going from one version to the other, and one OS to the other. I tried pulling the pref file over but that did nothing.

I'd rather not go through a new full set up if I do not need to. Any suggestions?

Thanks for any help.

If you're switching from Tiger to Leopard you'll have to delete the org.sbooth.Max.plist file anyway to get things working. So there is currently no way to carry over the settings between OS upgrades.
