Hi, I have a previous installation of Playonlinux on ubuntu 16.04 LTS which I would like to transfer to 20.04 LTS. I would not like to reinstall the programs for licensing issues. Is it possible to do this? Thank you,

Maybe it should work, get the application folder from the 'wineprefix' folder :

I did several tests, unfortunately I was not able to get the desired result. The program that was in the previous Playonlinux on the new operating system has been installed as a trial. And that's the problem? Maybe I'm wrong something else? Is there a script to do a further test?

Thank you.

simply transfer the ".PlayOnLinux" folder to your new system.

ls -a /home/$USER/
