I have just gone through this and found that the best way is just to reinstall from scratch. One major advantage of doing it this way is that you will discard many aircraft that you really don't use. Once I installed the aircraft I did copy over repaints from the old computer.Mark.

Yes, I plan a new install, but wish to bring my beloved pss concorde to the new computer, plus a few other favorites. would copying my aircraft folder work?

Being able to copy in the originals would have saved me a couple hours.
