I'm not a big fan of the Project Manager myself. Seems folks do have troubles with it. But you can get the job done without using it. Just take your Project and Media drives out of the current computer and put them in the new one.
Assuming those files aren't on the System drive (which is not a good idea to begin with), and you assign the same drive letters they now have, you won't have to do any extra work at all. Just open the project on the new machine once the all the software is reinstalled.
I am with Jim on this one. I'm working on a Project that was originally edited on a Mac. Copied everything over to a bigger, faster external, and work on it on two different systems here. I have the drive letter set to be the same on both OS's (Win XP-Pro SP3), so it shows exactly the same.
Other than having to do the "locate" for all files once (going from the Mac external to the PC external), there has been no hiccup.
All Project files are located in the main folder, and all Assets are in their appropriate sub-folders.
This particular Project edits fine from/to a 2TB Maxtor FW-800.
