I should work to simply copy the files, but Vista can be tricky.
First read this excerpt from the manual:
Windows Vista is a bit different. Because the setup program copies the settings to the common appdata folder, the files will inherit setups admin privelidges, so only a real admin (ie with UAC turned off) will be able to modify them. Vista has a solution called Virtualizing that will automatically make copies of the files to a VistualStore folder (typically %userprofile%\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\RL Vision\Flash Renamer
\). This means that all users will have unique settings. If you don't like this, you can change the read/write privileges on the original files (typically stored in C:\ProgramData\RL Vision\Flash Renamer
\) and give standard users write privelidges.
I suspect that the files you want are located in the "VirualStore" folder. Try to copy them instead!
> I have just switched from Vista 32 to Windows 7 x64. Before doing so I saved the C:\ProgramData\RL Vision\Flash Renamer
directory so my presets would be saved. After installing Flash Renamer
on W7 I copied that directory back to the same location (overwriting the files already there) and ran Flash Renamer
but the only presets that were there were the 3 default ones about MP3 renaming and basic file clean up. Does FR store the presets somewhere else under W7?
