Running Dxdesigner, I need to upgrade my computer and move all my projects to a new machine. What is the correct way to do that?

I tried simple copy, do not work, getting the "unable to open icdb connection"

tried migration copy too, do not work.


Tried icdb server to view the server, getting the same error.


Seems it is trying to open a database based on old machine's name? \\oldpc\work\...., but not on the local directory.

When I tried to open the project on a new machine, it still try to access \\oldpc\...

I tried to change the oldpc 's name to something else, I will get the same error. I guess I could change the new machine to the oldpc name, but that would not be elegant.

I noticed the database\icdb.dat contains the machine name and user name. I wonder if that is the parameter I should change? If so, how do I change?


Anyway, what is the right way to copy projects from old machine to a new machine? I never had the problem with design Capture. Were forced to use dxdesigner now .
