I need to transfer all Word Batch Replacer
settings to another computer. What should I copy?
Word Batch Replacer stores all its settings in several files in
the “Word Batch Replacer” subfolder of the %APPDATA% folder.
%APPDATA%, shorthand for Application Data, is the environment
variable which designates a folder where applications are supposed
to create subfolders to store all their settings. Word Batch
Replacer uses its own set of settings for every user of the
computer. To browse to the Application Data folder, just type
%APPDATA% (with percent signs) in the Windows Explorer address bar,
instead of a regular Windows filepath, and it will be automatically
expanded to the actual location. On 64-bit systems, Word Batch
Replacer uses the Application Data folder intended for 32-bit
applications, so the “Roaming” subfolder will be added to the
AppData path. To transfer all Word Batch Replacer settings,
including user-defined HTML templates, just copy the contents of
the “%APPDATA%\Word Batch Replacer” folder to the target computer.
You will also have to re-enter your registration key, because it is
stored in the system registry, not in the above-mentioned
