Change PSE cataloge to another computer

I have all my pictures and PSE catalog on a stationary computer, all this is backed up to my server (as echo).

Now I want to upgrade to PSE11 and install it on my server and use it as my primary PSE computer. How do I let PSE know that it should use the same catalogue but the files on my server and not my stationary?

I know about the move function, but I don't want to move all my pictures, as they are already on the server as well, but I just want PSE to know that the address to the files have changed. I know about the reconnect option, but I don't want to use for all my thousands and thousands of pictures.


Thanks in advance.

    If I understand well, all you have to do once you have installed PSE11, is to convert the old catalog. In the catalog manager, you choose 'convert' and navigate to your old catalog. That creates a new catalog in the new PSE11 format (without changing the old one) and keeps the original location and properties of your pictures files.
