If an installation of Probe for Windows needs to be transferred from one PC to another (e.g. PC upgrading, or another user needs to look at data).
1 Install Prwin on the new PC from the original CD or discs. This installs various Microsoft files, which may already be on the new PC.
2 Copy all the files in
C:\Prwin on the old PC to
C:\Prwin on the new PC.

prwin.938. If it is copied it must be deleted before using )
3 Copy your settings file
C:\Windows on the new PC.
