you using a dialog)."
This didn't work when I installed and started the
last qbuild. I had to copy the following folders
from the beta1-userdir by hand:

- $nbuser\config\Editors
- $nbuser\config\Favorites
- $nbuser\config\Services
- $nbuser\config\Toolbars
- $nbuser\config\vcs
- $nbuser\config\VCSMount
- $nbuser\config\Windows2Local

I also changed the name of the userdir to
as explained in [Issue 49813]

I believe it is problem ide module, probably missing copy info in 
cvs/ide/launcher/upgrade/src/org/netbeans/upgrade/copy3.6 [copy4.0beta2]
Comment 3 ulfzibis 2004-11-10 16:48:47 UTC
I meant the upgrade from 4.0beta1 to 4.0qbuild200410181322,
not from 3.6.
Comment 4 Milan Kubec 2004-12-06 09:16:54 UTC
I believe that upgrade is supported only from 3.6 and then from Beta2
to any other milestone build (RCs and FCS). Beta2 should be upgrading
only from 3.6. Yarda please verify.
Upgrade also works only if you use default userdirs for your
Comment 5 Jaroslav Tulach 2004-12-06 11:20:59 UTC
We upgrade only from 3.6 and beta2 (as it was cobundled with jdk). All
other settings are ignored. You can either copy the settings by hand
or directly point the IDE to your userdir of choice by using --userdir
