Webassist Presets - move manually to another computer?

Hi Ray

I'm in the process of setting up a new workstation because the latest Windows 10 update killed my last one! I had Dreamweaver 2015 & 2019 installed on it and had a lot of Dataassist, SecurityAssist and HTML Editor presets set up on the 2015 version which weren't yet installed on 2019. However, since the Windows update I've been unable to run DW 2015 which means I can't get in to export my presets. I can still access the Program files via File Explorer though, so I wondered if there was a way I could get the presets manually by copying over the relevant files? Can you advise?

The presets are all saved as XML, so you should be able to move them over manually.

Go to the users configuration folder and copy the folder:

all of the configurable presets for databridge are there. For SecurityAssist copy:

Then for html editor copy:
