TIA , Windows 11 Oops... Going from TBird Portable to Thunderbird 115.9.0 (64-bit) SuperNova I accidentally ended up with Thunderbird 115.9.0 (64-bit) SuperNova , (TBS). And I notice there is an entry in 'Installed Apps' for Mozilla Thunderbird (x86 en-US) But when I look in C:\Program Files (x86) there is no Entry for TB . Moving on ... TB Portable has Folders for 'App' 'Data' 'Other' TB Supernova (TBS) has no such Folders . And Looks Like I'll have to re-Build all my email accounts (10) .

How to proceed? : Shall I unInstall 'Installed Apps' for Mozilla Thunderbird (x86 en-US) I do have a Backup for: TB Portable has Folders for 'App' 'Data' 'Other'

Isisombululo esikhethiwe

The addressbook is there. That there are multiple copies indicates some problems in the past. At this time, I presume you have copied the profile to thunderbird, so I no longer know what actual issue is. Copying the profile intact from one copy of thunderbird to another includes all components.

Look in the portable's Data folder for a folder called Profile. You can verify by seeing if it contains abook.sqlite or prefs.js as those two are in all profiles. You can import it by tools>import>import from another thunderbird installation.

That's the one. It has everything. You can use it by the tools>import>import from another thunderbird installation menu option from menu bar. Be sure that the portable version is NOT running.

What you are showing indicates you have the full profile. Just import the folder named 'profile'

I am confused. You say it i working but you also that it isn't. Can you post a screenshot of the active profile, now that you have imported?

Thunderbird-Trials C:\Desktop\myPrograms\ThunderbirdPortable\App\Thunderbird64 If I run TB64.exe , I get the "set up your email address" , as if there is no entry for vmars316@live.com .

C:\Desktop\myPrograms\ThunderbirdPortable If I run TBPortable.exe . It brings up vmars316@live.com/InBox Now I run Tools>ImportTool>Import from anotherThunderbird installation. Continue Choose a profile Folder Continue Choose what to import I chose all. Continue Import from a TB profile Start Import Complete Finish Restart TB . There is still only vmars316@live.com and no AddressBook etc..

How can I be sure there are existing AddressBook , MailAccounts , etc. .? Where are they located , what are their names ? Thanks

You posted screenshots of everything except the profile. on the portable version, the folder had the name 'profile.' that is the folder to use. It is complete if you copy it when the portable version is NOT running. If running during the copy, it will be corrupted. All items, such as addressbook, are in that folder.
