Mac and PC Compatability

Post by fsilvernail » Wed Mar 04, 2020 4:31 pm

Pretty sure I know the answer but thought I would ask before committing. Currently have my DMXis and Show Buddy configuration / backup files from my Windows 10 machine backed in some cloud space. For a backup computer, can I pull those files and use on a MAC or an I stuck w/ Windows?

Did you end up figuring this out?

I couldn't find the database file on my main machine (Win10), but I did see all the media in
c:\programdata\show buddy\media files.
I took a backup of this folder to my mac, but the database was missing.

To get the database, I had to manually export it from SBS on my win10 machine and import it on my mac.
At first glance, this does seem to have worked. I'll check all my midi triggers later on.

I'd like to know if this can be automated so I can also push it up to the cloud and also save point-in-time snapshots.
please let me know if you find out.

thanks,
Callan
