There is an option to export the database. Look under TOOLS>DATABASE>DATABASE MANAGER>COMPONENTS>USER DATABASE. This will export the user database to a .PRZ file. Take this file to another computer and load it onto it. After that go back to the same dialog box you exported it from on the new computer and select import. This should do it.
Let me know if you have already done this. If you have then there may be something else going on.
What am I not selecting correctly -- import and export "buttons" are unavailabe on both the computer I had been using, and the computer I have moved Multisim 10.1 to -- a screen shot is posted.
I have copied the UserDatabase file (not the template) from the old system. Can I just replace the existing file in the Applications Data/National Instruments folder?
The Import/Export buttons are only enabled in the Power Pro version.
If you do not have Power Pro, the best solution would be to do as you have suggested, that is to copy over your old User Database to your new computer.
The following procedure outlines how to replace this file:
1. In Multisim, select Options>>Global Preferences. Here you will find the path to your User Database.
2. Navigate to the folder specified in the User Database path. Here you will find the User Database, which is of the form UsrComp_S_*.usr.
3. Copy over the UsrComp_S_*.usr file from your old computer.
4. In Multisim, select Options>>Global Preferences. Under User Database, enter the location of the database that was just copied over. Note: Database names are user-dependent; you may need to rename the file.
You will need to restart Multisim in order for the changes to take effect.
Thanks, not that it makes me happy to cut and paste to accopmlish this.
You might want to outline the procedure in the documentation or help files.
