  3. Save the exported files which are in .txt format.
  4. Save the Variations folder from: <directory>\CatTools\
  5. If you are using CatTools 3.10 or a higher version, deactivate the current license using the License Manager. The Licence Manager can be downloaded here.
  6. Install CatTools on the new system and license it.
  7. Copy the following files and folder from the old system to the new system: 
    • Exported .txt files
    • Variations folder
  8. Open the Activities file and ensure that all paths are valid. For example, if CatTools was previously installed in c:\program files\ and is now installed in c:\program files (x86)\, you will need to reflect this path change within the INI file.
  9. Open CatTools Manager > File > Import > Import the two .txt files.
  10. Copy the Variations folder to the new CatTools installation directory.
  11. Restart the CatTools services.
