Long time, no talk...

I have OE Pro installed on 2 different computers. Each installation is in a unique path.

How do I transfer the retrieved data and projects?

The data is in C:\downloads

I thought the projects were stored in webdown.dat but there must be project definitions stored somewhere else.

Please advise.

You would need to open the Options dialog on the source and destination computers. And transfer the contents of the Projects, Maps and Templates directory to the similar place on the other computer. For example, S has "c:\Documents and Settings\UserA\Application Data\Offline Explorer\" and D has "c:\Users\UserB\AppData\Roaming\Offline Explorer\".

Then you would have to copy the contents of the source computer "c:\Documents and Settings\UserA\Application Data\Offline Explorer\" to the destination computer "c:\Users\UserB\AppData\Roaming\Offline Explorer\".

Joining Projects is not supported yet. 7.0 version will have a Wizard to help with this process.

Downloaded web sites should be transfered exactly to the same path as on the source computer. In your case you would have to copy them to c:\downloads\.
