Project settings migration

How do I transfer my IDE settings and projects from build 650 (before the
existence of ../.IntellijIdea30/config/..)?

Do I just copy xml files into the new config/.. directory?

Thanks,

Ted Hill

I just copied the files/dirs as you mentioned and it worked fine.

That should work fine. Note also that you can choose to edit the
JVM args in idea.lax to use your old location for system and config files.
But the new way allows multiple users to share an install dir.

Something you'll definatley want to do if your stick using NT/2000 with
roaming profiles, unless you like waiting five minutes to log on/off while
it copies the directorys back & forth to the server; either edit the
idea.lax or modify the properties -Didea.system.path and -Didea.config.path
in the idea.bat file.
