I have a working wine installation one one computer including several 
installed programs. Now I would like to move the .wine folder, which as 
I understand it contains all the configuration details and windows file 
and registry, to another conputer. What is the easiest way to do this?

I installed already the same wine version (0.9.3) on the other computer.

How can I move the .wine directory? Simply copying does not work, as the 
shortcots are lost.

I can't use WineTools, as I don't get it to run on the second computer 
(see my previous email "Problem with WineTools - unexpected identifier").

Any help welcome,
