Ceder Square Dance System (CSDS) ==> Upgrading

Move to New Computer
Bought a new laptop and want to move csds and my music data base to the new computer. How do I move the old music data base to the new computer?

1) Copy folder c:\sqdata with all files and sub-folders to the new computer.

Specifically, the music database is folder c:\sqdata\music

2) Install the latest 'Complete' release of CSDS on the new computer.

3) Copy your CSDS settings from the old computer to the new computer:

  1. On the old computer, run CSDS;
  2. From the menu, select 'Other | Registry | Export';
  3. Specify a filename, and click the 'Save' button;
  4. Copy this file to the new computer;
  5. On the new computer, run CSDS;
  6. From the menu, select 'Other | Registry | Import';
  7. Specify the filename, and click the 'Open' button.

4) Copy any other folders used by CSDS (i.e., the folders where your actual music files reside) to the same location on the new computer.
