Transferring CastleOS between computers is a very simple process. There are two main things you need to do: first deactivate CastleOS on the old computer, and then copy the settings and log files to the new computer. Here's how!

1) Deactivate CastleOS on the old computer

2) Install CastleOS on the new computer, but don't log in or do anything with it just yet

3) Shut down CastleOS on the new computer, by going to Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Services > CastleOSCoreService and pressing the "stop" option

4) On the old computer, go to C:\ProgramData\CastleOS\CastleOS Core Service and copy configuration.xml and log.sdf (note: not log.log) to the same folder on the new computer.

5) Go back to services and press the "start" option on CastleOSCoreService

All your settings should be moved, and from here you are free to reenter to license code to activate the new computer. Enjoy!
