Transferring Start Page Favourites to New Computer

QV12 SR3

I'm assuming the answer is probably no but it can't hurt to ask...

Our IT dept here have presented me with a nice new shiny computer.  Is there anyway to transfer the favourites on the start page from my old computer to my new computer?

Re: Transferring Start Page Favourites to New Computer

Just tried copying new files to the favourites list at the end of the .ini file and it seems to work.

...

[Favorites]

Example.qvw=U:\My Documents\Qlikview\Example.qvw

Test.qvw=U:\My Documents\Qlikview\Test.qvw

ExcelTest.qvw=U:\My Documents\Qlikview\ExcelTest.qvw

APIGuide.qvw=U:\My Documents\Qlikview\APIGuide.qvw

Categories.qvw=U:\My Documents\Qlikview\Categories.qvw

List.qvw=U:\My Documents\Qlikview\List.qvw

Queries.qvw=U:\My Documents\Qlikview\Queries.qvw

I would recommend backing up the .ini file just in case, but it could be a useful trick.

You can see the files set as favourites in the Settings.ini file at C:\Users\{user}\AppData\Roaming\QlikTech\QlikView.

Not sure if it's possible to copy them from one to another, though.
