    My computer was old and slow, so my computer guy put in a new disk and a new motherboard. My hard drive was installed as a slave, drive F.

    So I go to f;\program files\htmlkit\bin\htmlkit.exe I see the splash screen, and then the it immediately kills itself.

    I think I have to go and download the last tree house build I had, and reinstall it. Now, where are all my templates, snippets and all the other stuff I had configured?

    It's funny, I opted for a new mother board instead of a new computer because I didn't want to have to go through reinstalling programs, but it looks like I might have to.

      Hi,

      Since you're doing a fresh operating system install instead of a typical
      upgrade the old program paths are no longer there.

      But getting things back up and running with Tools is fairly painless:

      1. Install HTML-Kit Tools on essentially your new computer

      2. Make sure Tools isn't running and copy old data to the new drive.

        Copy from: "F:\Program Files\HTML-Kit\Tools\bin*.hsf"

        Copy to (32-bit Windows): "C:\Program Files\HTML-Kit\Tools\bin\"

        If you're installing a 64-bit version of Windows,
        copy to: "C:\Program Files (x86)\HTML-Kit\Tools\bin\"

      3. When you open Tools, all your templates, snippets, projects,
        settings, etc., will be there.

      Hope this helps!

        Chami, I swear to God, you are my hero! Of all the things I have to do to get myself up to speed, that was the simplest thing in the world. Thank you so, so much!

      Glad you have found that the easy part was getting HK Tools back and
      running. There are three hardware changes that will cause you to have
      to reinstall all your software. You have already made two of those
      changes, the disc and motherboard. The other is the CPU installed in an
      existing motherboard. Any of these pieces individually or together and
      installs are in order.

      Just so you are aware.
