Transfer Calibre library to different machine

Library is stored in D:\e-books\CalLib\ on one machine. I want to move the library to a laptop with no D drive. I don't want to import all the transferred library. I just want to put the whole \CalLab folder on a flash drive and copy it to the new computer, load Calibre, and be done. Are there files from the Calibre program folder that I need to move, and/or can I from the GUI menu just tell Calibre to use the \CalLib folder and where to find it?

Thanks -- Don

Just copy the whole of the Calibre Library folder over, and then on the new machine tell Calibre (via the GUI) to use the new location.
