How would I deactivate/uninstall FxLab on my current PC without losing my presets, settings etc, while installing fxlab on my laptop?

Thanks, fast replies are appreciated

Uninstalling it is as simple as deleting it from your computer. Any presets that you have created can be exported as an FXpreset_pack, which can then be installed into the system on your new machine. Any presets you didn't create can be freely downloaded from the site, or you can back them up from your current machine.

Thanks, I think I phrased my question wrong a bit though.

I meant to say to uninstall/deactivate FxLab on my current machine and save the presets settings etc. so that when I install it on my current machine again it will still be there without haveing to re-import etc.

This is because I will need it on a laptop for a filming session the next day, for some on-site editing, then the main editing will be done on my current machine, so I would like everything to still be there.

Thanks for the help =D

There isn't a facility to retain imported presets, I'm afraid. You'll need to re-import them after re-installing.

Solved.

All I had to do was delete keyfile in current pc. This way it remains installed with all presets still present but unregistered. This way I can activate another installation of fxlab on my laptop.
