New Local Account [with Administrative Priviledge]

Post by Hans-Peter G. » 2019 Nov 07, 06:50

Please, what is the procedure to activate xplorer² Ultimate x64 on a new Local Account AND to import its settings from the original / primary account.

Many thanks!

export the settings from the old account and import them to the new one; see here for details

the license should be ok, as you won't change the installation folder

Thank you very much, Nikos

My installation of xplorer² Ultimate x64 appears to run off an ini file here:

C:\Users\NAME\AppData\Roaming\zabkat\x2settings.ini

I copied the 'zabkat' folder to the equivalent location, here …

C:\Users\NAME-LOCAL ACCOUNT\AppData\Roaming\zabkat

… BEFORE launching xplorer² for the first time in that Account — and then it opened with all my settings. Brilliant!

But, note, this is not quite how you described the procedure in the Blog post from 2008 to which you linked me. Ten years later, maybe an Update?

I no longer remember how long ago I started using xplorer² (WXP ?), but I cannot imagine using Windows without it — superb software!
