Help!  I'm being migrated to a new PC.

Anybody have a clue how to move a CD site from one PC to another?  I built my current site with CD using my company supplied (leased) PC and now they are (have) moved me to a new one.  I have less than 30 days to return the old laptop.

I'm currently using the Home version.

I did try 1) installing Starter from the web and then 2) copying my current files over the Starter files.  That did not work (I got a multi user site warning).

Any clues?  Does the require FogCreek intervention?

Liberty for All,

Do you own a copy that's not Starter? Install that, instead.
copy the .cty file, not the CityDesk program files folder. Your data lives in SiteName.cty exclusively and totally. What version are you using, anyways?

Do you know where your .cty file lives? If not, do a search for it, or look (but don't touch!) in the registry under HKey Current User->Software->Fog Creek Software->CityDesk->Sites, and copy the path from the registry key into an explorer window...This key's name and location may vary by CityDesk version and Windows version so I recommend that you try searching for the .cty from explorer first.
