How do I transfer channel and other information from Personal 2.2 to Personal 2.2.3? Synchronization does not work.

Thanks

Yes, sync'ing between different versions is deliberately disabled and while it's possible to turn this version check off, it's not recommended.

The best way would be like this:

(*) Start with a clean installation of 2.2.3 that has been run at least once.
(*) In your user's home directory (e.g. C:\Program Files\Awasu\Users\YOUR-NAME), delete the ARCHIVE.DB file plus all the .CHANNEL files in the Channels sub-directory.
(*) Copy over the .CHANNEL files from your 2.2 installation to your 2.2.3 installation.
(*) If you want to transfer all your settings, report configs, channel filters, etc., copy over the CONFIG.INI file as well.
(*) Restart Awasu.

This is a bit of a hack but should work. If the two Awasu's are installed to different directories, you may find some minor problems because file paths are stored in the config files using absolute paths but these are easily identified by grep'ing through them.
