HELP: How to transfer Calibre to new computer??

How to transfer Calibre to new computer??

I'm totally confused, I just wanted switch my library to the new computer but don't know how to do it. If anybody can show me how simple easy steps, I would be over the moon.

I followed these instructions and my library is still blank. Calibre identifies the library as the correct one, but the books do not show up. I did a database restore, but that didn't help. I think I'm just too stupid to figure it out.

Do you have 2 Calibre Library folders?

The folder name is the Library name.
You can rename the folder (to avoid confusion) using the OS
THEN
relink Calibre by using Create -switch to set the new name into use

Things are sorted in Calibre it seems. I had to use Dropbox to move these files because my new computer would not copy them over from the removable drive. I am having some major Dropbox weirdness, but Calibre is finding my library now and working smoothly. I appreciate the help very much.
