I'm in the process of switching from an old XP machine to a new Vista machine. (The hardware is an upgrade but the software is a downgrade. <smirk>).

It should be sufficient if you copy c:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Application Data\monotone\keys (spelled out of my brain, check the actual paths since I have no Windoze machine handy atm).

The basic thought was right, for which I thank you. However, there was a wrinkle because Vista's file structure is different. So, if there's a place to add a factoid to the collective knowledge, the right place for the monotone directory (at least the place that worked for me) is:
```
c:\users\howard\AppData\Roaming

```
There are at least two other directories under AppData which are the wrong ones to choose, so it's not automatically obvious where the key file goes.

P.S. I didn't run any real tests to make sure things were working other than "mtn list keys". I assume if I see my private key that way, then things are copacetic.
