In the Q&A a user asks if users can be imported from an old app object. Here's one idea that may save a little time.

Instead of moving users, use the existing app object to distribute the new app. Remove all entries from the following property tabs:

  • Macros
  • Environment Variables
  • Registry Settings
  • INI Settings
  • Application Files
  • Text Files
  • Icons/Shortcuts

Now you can import the information from the new AOT file created by snAppShot, for the new app. There's an import button or menu item on each of the above property sheets to do this.

Voila, old app object, with original users, with new app distribution!
