For windows 7/Vista, The files you need are located in C:\Users\YourWindowsLogin\AppData\Roaming\HoldemManager. If you are using the standalone, the path is c:\program files (x86)\notecaddy 2. You need to copy over the following files:
  • caddysettings.xml
  • caddylayout.xml
  • ColorDefinitions.xml
  • noteDefinitionsLayout.xml
  • colorDefinitionsLayout.xml
  • defaultmappings.xml

There is also a folder named NoteCaddyDefinitions. In the standalone it is named definitions. Copy this entire folder over as it contains your NoteCaddy definitions.
