Thunderbird Profile Transfer

On a number of occasions now I have tried to transfer my Thunderbird profile from a laptop running 115 to one running version 115.3.2 (64-bit) on Windows 11, without success.

I carefully followed the instructions here: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/moving-thunderbird-data-to-a-new-computer#thunderbird:win10:tb115

I first tried a couple of weeks ago, shortly before going on holiday. As I was short of time I put my lack of success down to operator error.

Since my return I have tried again today, but with no success.

I can see two files in users>myname>AppData>Roaming>Thunderbird>profiles, one dated 30/09/2023 which contains only a times.json file and one dated today with plenty of other files in it.

I presume today's file contains my profile but I don't know how to get TB to find/recognise it. I shall be very grateful for any help.
