Moving a crossover bottle to a new computer

How do I move my CrossOver programs from my old Mac computer to my new Mac computer? Where are the various parts located? Can I transfer them to regular Wine bottles without CrossOver?

Hi Phil
Go to Manage Bottles Click on the Advanced tab and then click Make Archive. Move the Archive file to your new computer and launch Crossover from Manage Bottles click ad from Archive select the archive file and your done.

Thanks, but what if the old computer is corrupt, so all I have is the backup of the directory/repository/hard drive?
How can I start up a new CrossOver installation on a new computer with information from the backup drive?

To follow up on this one...

I have found the old bottle in my backup archive. I have copied it to my new computer, but now I discover a new challenging task: my bottle is a couple of months old, and the CrossOver Application is the most recent 14.0.3.

Now the bottle from an older CrossOver version wont start in the newest CrossOver. How do I make the bottle up-to-date with the current CrossOver version? I have tried "Clear and Rebuild" but it doesn't help... I can't find any other menu option, what have I missed?

Thanks in advance!

If the bottle is only a few months old you should be able to add it to ~/Library/Application Support/CrossOver/Bottles and the next time you launch Crossover it'll be scanned and added.
