copy the library with the textures that I created on my pc to another computer

I need help. I can not copy the library with the textures that I created on my pc to another computer. I did what was described in this forum but not worked. I have many maps created and I can not lose them.
Where are these files?

Re: copy the library with the textures that I created on my pc to another computer

Hi, I have this path in my pc with Windows XP :

C:\Documents and Settings\aacorreia\Application Data\eTeks\Sweet Home 3D

this directory are several files *. pref but the directory \ textures - This is empty.

I copied the *. pref for the pc that has windows 7 but they do not appear in the library of textures.

what could be wrong?

textures directory contains SH3T files so it's not a problem.

You have to copy the preferences.xml file too.
If the destination computer runs Windows 7, the destination directory should be
C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\eTeks\Sweet Home 3D where user is your user name.

Caution! Once preferences.xml is copied on the destination computer you'll will loose all the furniture and textures you imported on that computer. So create a backup of Sweet Home 3D directory first.

Re: copy the library with the textures that I created on my pc to another computer

And what happens if you're on a Mac?

I notice that when I copy my whole folder with all libraries, project to USB stick to then work on that on my Macbook, once copying everything back to my Mac, my changes are lost as well!

Which file, where, to copy as well? Guess in the 'Application Support' library? Only .xml?

Re: copy the library with the textures that I created on my pc to another computer

The content of the eTeks/Sweet Home 3D is portable from a computer to another one and across different operating systems. The difference from a system to another is the name of this folder and where it should be found:
- under Windows Vista / 7 / 8 / 10, this folder is C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming\eTeks\Sweet Home 3D,
- under Windows XP and previous versions of Windows, this folder is C:\Documents and Settings\user\Application Data\eTeks\Sweet Home 3D,
- under Mac OS X, it's the subfolder Library/Application Support/eTeks/Sweet Home 3D of your user folder,
- under Linux and other Unix, it's the subfolder .eteks/sweethome3d of your user folder,
- under the portable version, it's the subfolder data of the folder that contains Sweet Home 3D applications.

Under Mac OS X, to ensure you pick the right eTeks folder, you can open a new window in the Finder, select Go > Go To Folder menu item (cmd + Shift + G shortcut), and enter the folder ~/Library/Application Support

Emmanuel,

Thanks for pasting my info!

In the subfolder you mention (on Mac) there are only .pref files. No xml! I'll test to see if things go better with copying the mentioned folder as well!

Thanks for your effort!

Kind regards,

Ed

Re: copy the library with the textures that I created on my pc to another computer

From version 3.0, preferences.xml file is necessary and .pref files alone are useless.
What version of Sweet Home 3D do you use?

Re: copy the library with the textures that I created on my pc to another computer

Hi Emmanuel,

Version 3.6; found the preferences.xml alright! It was right in the middle of all the .pref files!
Sorry!

Will copy both folders completely to put on my Macbook in future; not only the 'working folder'...

Thanks for your info!

Kind regards,

Ed
