Migrate from PC to Mac DCP-o-Matic

Post by philipwdasilva »

Hi,

I can't find any easy how to migrate my DCP project from a PC to a Mac. What I need to do is basically to be able to open the project and then create DKDMs on a mac now instead of the original PC where the project is.

I've tried to export certificates and such fron the PC to the Mac but just can't get it right. And to be honest I really don't know what I'm doing 🙈 I just get error messages on everything.

A step by step tutorial would be amazing :)

Could anybody help me?

Transferring the preferences folder should be all that's needed. They are in different locations in Windows and Mac OS, but they are compatible between platforms. Except that some paths may be missing, but that should not be problem.

I suggest you make yourself familiar with the prefs file location in Windows and in Mac OS, and then simply try to copy them. It certainly helps if the DCP-o-matic version is the same on both machines.

Exporting/importing cert chains and other database files will work as well, but may be a bit more complicated.


Whatever you do, keep copies of your prefs folder on both systems - you could e.g. just right-click->ZIP/compress on both systems to keep them safe.
