If I want to quickly add all those locations to another installation of Yowindow can I just copy that Options.XML file from one machine to the other? The first machine is a Win XP machine and the second machine is a Win 7 laptop. Should I also copy the other .XML?

The XP machine does fine but the Win 7 laptop has problems updating the locations' conditions. Should I delete and reinstall there and then copy over the two XML files?
Should be no problem...Though they would be in a somewhat different location...

Check the top of this post...
Works flawlessly! All I had to do to get Yowindow to work on my laptop was to stop the program and restart it (didn't even have to reinstall it!)

Hi all !
Thanks for great answers. I will be sure to backup the file you mentioned.
I have always run the upgrade with the existing install intact and the locations are replaced with the default (Los Angels, New York, etc).
