New machine, keep old calibre setup?

Hi, I've just moved to a new machine. I downloaded Calibre from the website and copied the Calibre data directory from my old machine just fine, but when I start up Calibre it no longer has any of my preferences. I'm sure I've seen on this forum somewhere that there is one file to copy with options/preferences, but I can't find the post.

Help, please?

On old PC
start Calibre
Options: Miscellaneous: Open calibre Configuration Directory.
Leave open.
Quit Calibre
Copy the entire directory to
the new configuration directory (use the same trick to get there).
