I've just bought a new desktop to supplement/replace my old laptop. I've copied all my work into the equivalent location on the new computer, so all my translation memories and glossaries are in the "same" place (D:/Documents....etc) as the were in the old one. But somewhere in the old machine must be the wordfast ".ini" files, which save all the various setups with the glossary and TM locations. Can I just copy and paste them across from a USB memory stick? And where are they anyway?

Thanks in advance,
Richard

Actually I've just found them, they are in:

C:\Documents and Settings\(name)\Application Data\Word\STARTUP

It remains to be seen whether just copying and pasting them works.

Copying them will keep your settings intact, but since this is a new computer, Wordfast won't recognise your computer and hence it won't recognise you, and to re-introduce yourself to Wordfast you'd have to relicense it on the Wordfast web site. If you bought Wordfast less than 3 years ago, relicensing should be free. If not, well... then your licence has expired anyway and you need to buy another.
