Reinstall After OS Upgrade

Was using an older version of TDM on a Windows XP PC with configuration ‘Standard Installation 2’. Saved directory ‘Standard Installation 2’ to an external drive. Wiped PC and upgraded OS to Windows 7. Reinstalled TDM. How do I get it to use my old installation so that I’ll have my macros, scripts, naming conventions, models, etc.?

Hi Brian,

the easiest way should be to copy the contents of your original Standard Installation 2 directory to the new one created during the first run of TDM.
It should work flawlessly. You can check Paths in the menu Settings | Options | Paths.

Lukas,

Shut down TDM. Renamed the directory created by the first run of TDM from ‘Standard Installation’ to ‘Standard Installation - New Install’. Renamed my old TDM directory from ‘Standard Installation 2’ to ‘Standard Installation’. Started TDM … worked brilliantly! Got all my models, naming conventions, macros, etc. back.

Thanks.

Hi Brian,

yes, that’s another way. Good work! I’m glad that you’re glad.

Regards,
Lukas
