Pinned topic Config Files for CICS Explorer

‏2012-03-21T17:00:55Z |
I am migrating an install of Explorer V1.1.0.1 from a Windows XP machine to a new Laptop (Lenovo T420). I copied the Explorer install directory to the new machine thinking it contained all required components for execution. Explorer starts on Windows 7 Enterprise edition but I have no configuration.

?? Where are the configuration files stored on Windows XP? I have looked at all the normal locations I can think of and can't find them.

My configurations has several LPARs worth of CPSM/CICS regions, CTG defs., and MVS JES's defs and I am really not inclined to want to recollect all this information manually key all this again.
Can someone assist?
Thanks,
Ray

    All of your config files will be in your workspace. By default you'll find them somewhere like this:

    C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\.cicsexplorer

    If you copy this file to the same place in your new system, you should have all of your connections again.

    I meant of course - copy the whole path. Best is to delete the workspace that will have been automatically created on your new system. You can easily chge e location of our workspace using the -data option. See other posts on this subject.

    John,
    I hear what you say and I see the .cicsecplorer in my Windows XP C:\D&S\UserID\ directory.
    In Windows 7 EE things are stored in the /Users/UserID/ directory.
    I palced it there and did not get any good result.
    What is your opinion of where to drop this on a Windows 7 system?
    Tks, Ray

    Ignore my last post. I must have not replaced everything in the folder before.
    This time I deleted the .cicsexplorer folder on Windows 7 and then copied the one from Windows XP to the new location.
    All is well now.
    Thanks for the input.
    Best Regards,
    Ray
