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

Emmanuel,
unfortunatly it does not appear as you described. The folder i want to transfer from my older Mac contains the structure as you wrote, like textures, furniture and so on, but they are not filled with MY stuff, in fact, the textures folder is empty.
Instead, alot of *.pref files sitting in the parent Sweethome3D folder.
Example:
content43242352rf....pref
furniture-3-r2r24f222....pref
texture.....pref
and so on.

And, in my destination, which is Win7, is NO eteks folder in the Roaming path, instead the eteks folder sits in users/user/.

When i copy the mentioned files over, SH3D doesnot see any of it.
But this folder is used, as i can see some files being added to the work-subdirectory.

so, where does it go wrong?

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

Individually imported furniture and textures are stored in Furniture-3-*.pref and Texture-3-*.pref files. You should copy them too, along with preferences.xml file.
furniture and textures subfolders contain only SH3F and SH3T files.

And, in my destination, which is Win7, is NO eteks folder in the Roaming path, instead the eteks folder sits in users/user/.
On my Win7 system, eTeks\Sweet Home 3D folders are created in C:\Users\user\AppData\Roaming, but as the root of eTeks folder is returned by a Java property, it's possible that it could change from a computer to an other (even if I would be astonished that it changes for a given system). Note also that AppData is hidden by default.

But this folder is used, as i can see some files being added to the work-subdirectory.
That could be a proof that it's the right folder, but this folder is also used when you run Sweet Home 3D from its portable version. You don't use that version, do you?
My suggestion would be to remove eTeks folder, and relaunch Sweet Home 3D to check if this folder is created again.

YES!
Thanks! Finally it worked. a deleted and-recopied all the files, including the preferences, so now i know it can be done.

Maybe the folder is different because i installed SH3D as admin? So there is no quarantine for "malicious" suspected software used in this case.

anyway, thanks again!
