AFAIK you would need to copy also  digicamrc (somewhere in your win 
%appdata% structure, depends on win version, mabe look at "local").

If you have a different path setup on new  win system, lets say for for 
db and fotos,  you would need to edit this in rc file, (and an other 
config file, i do not yet remember). By this you can manage to move all 
dk an foto file  to any path, and start with previous resulst existent.
