Hi,

Basically as the title says - I have quite a few scripts and datasets on my old PC's installation of Wealth-Lab 6.1. I have a new PC, which I want to run my copy of Wealth-Lab on. I'm sure there must be an easy way of moving all this data over to my new PC, but I have not been able to find out how. Can anyone point me in the right direction please?

1. Install WLP on the new PC and run it.
2. Shut WLP down
3. See User Guide: Data chapter > Where Data is Stored, and copy the user \Data folder to the location on the new computer.

Note that if you plan to use both computers, you can share a directory for data updates using the Fidelity Data Relocation feature.

Note: the Fidelity Data Relocation feature doesn't apply to Wealth-Lab Developer customers who in their turn might have success following this FAQ (if required):

Can I relocate the whole "Data" folder (or only some subfolder) of my Wealth-Lab 6 from C: to a different drive or directory?
