Previously when I upgraded computers I copied the webdown.dat to the new system in the folder spcified by "Projects, Templates and Maps". I'm trying this again and it doesn't seem to work. When I copy webdown.dat and then open OE Pro the projects are blank. When I close OE Pro the copied webdown.dat is overwritten with the blank projects file. version is 6.6.3944, has there been some change to how we mograte projects?

No, there was no change. Can you open the file in Notepad to see if it is broken somehow?

Best regards,

File opens fine in Notepad, can't see any problems. When OE Pro opens with the blank projects, if I save it renames the new Webdown.dat (with my projects) to .bak and replaces it with a new blank one so it obviously sees it.

Can I ask you to send this file to me via support@metaproducts.com ? I will try to reproduce.

I got the projects loaded. The first time I tried was directly after installing OE Pro. I then rebooted the system, ran up OE pro and the projects appeared. Didn't seem to work directly after first installation.

The first time OE runs in administrative mode if started from the installer. Maybe it was the reason.
