Can the NETOS Pkg Mngr database be copied to another computer?

0 votes
I am trying to move a highly customized installation of Netos to another computer (from Win7 to Win10).

I started by using an ISO image to install a clean 7.5.2 into the new Win 10 computer — seems like everything is working.

Then I copied my existing Win7 C:\netos75 folder to the new computer to replace the clean one.
Then I copied my existing Win7 \Digi_ESP folder to the new computer to replace the clean one.

When I started ESP, it complained that the Package Manager database did not exist, and created a new one. The list of packages is now totally out of sync with what's actually installed.

Since this DB is obviously not in \netos75 nor in \Digi_ESP, I looked around, but see no obvious location for it to be in. Nothing looks obvious in \ProgramData.

Can the package database be copied to the new computer?

Thanks.

Ah -- must have been in workspace /.metadata. After moving that over, the package manager appears to be in the same state as the source computer.
