How to migrate custom settings and files from previous releases? Just upgraded to 2012. How do I migrate my 2011 into my 2012 program?

You can import your settings from 2011 to 2012.
If you have not already created a custom profile, I will try to walk you through.

On Menu Bar go to "Tools" then "Options" and the Options dialog box should open. Go to the "Profiles" tab. click "Add to List". Create a name in the dialog box such as "LibravSetup" and if you want you can add information in the "Description" box. Click "Apply and Close". You should now see that Profile added to the list. Highlight it and click "Current" then at the bottom of the Dialog Box click "Apply". You have just saved all of your current settings as "LibravSetup".

Now click "Export" and a Windows Explorer type dialog box will open to allow you to save the Profile. (I save mine to my Desktop.) Now click "OK" to exit the "Options" Dialog.

Start ZWcad 2012.
On Menu Bar go to "Tools" then "Options" and the Options dialog box should open. Go to the "Profiles" tab. click "Import" and a Windows Explorer type dialog box will open to allow you to import "LibravSetup" Profile from where you saved it. Highlight it and click "Open" then click "Apply and Close". You should now see your Profile added to the list. Highlight it and click "Current" then at the bottom of the Dialog Box click "Apply". You have just set all of your settings for 2012 the same as 2011.

I can't promise that all of your customized settings are made, but there will be a lot less left to tweak.
Good day.

The problem now is tha paths in options/file are all referred to ZWCAD 2011 folder... We have to change it manually. Apart this the solution is good.
