Here is a link to the Cameo Master thread. I am sure it's in there. Good luck!

I did it last month. Just reinstall the software on the new computer and then open the software and click the button that takes you to the store. Once there go to your account and click the restore shapes button.

I didn't know that this was a problem. I assumed that you just signed on to the new computer and it was all there in your account.

Any shapes you purchased outside of silhouette will have to manually be transferred. And I had several Silhouette disks from years ago and they will not reinstall on their own either. After contacting silhouette, I was told I would have to import each image individually back into the software. I love my Silhouette, but have NOT loved the transfer to a new computer.

It scares me that the store only allows you to restore your shapes 3x. Given that my DH likes to reformat our computers twice/year, that policy would mean I had no shapes after a year.
There is a way to copy your whole library (easily) onto an external harddrive and transport it that way. But the file is *really* hard to find.

Here are some instructions:
transferring silhouette files

I believe this is the folder your want:
C>Program Files>Silhouette Studio>Resources>resources> com.aspexsoftware.silhouette_studio.8

Thank you for that, Kirsten. I was wondering earlier today how I was going to manage that.
