I now have a second PC and I would like to run wealthLabPro there too. I currently have many datasets. Is there an easy way to move these datasets to another PC?

Find the User Data folder (User Guide > Data > Where Data is Stored) and just drop the contents of the \DataSet folder in the same place on the other computer. Restart Wealth-Lab.

Also, see the Relocate Data topic (User Guide > Data > Data Manager > Symbol Management). You can pull your Fidelity data from a network drive so that you only have to update once.

How to export all my datasets, strategies etc to a new PC?
Desktop ---> Laptop

P.S. One more thing. If you have Windows Vista or Windows 7, the path in the User Guide (6.1) should read:

C:\Users\Windows User Name\AppData\Roaming\Fidelity Investments\WealthLabPro\1.0.0.0\Data\
