Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

Without roaming files, am I SOL?

Hello,
I am attempting to transfer over my old trusty f2k setup/themes to my new computer. However, I believe made a mistake when transferring foobar to my new computer, in that I only copied the program files over....A few hours of digging online and troubleshooting, made me realize that I should have copied the roaming files over as well. Since I don't have access to my old computer anymore, can I salvage at least some of my old F2k configuration using only the "foobar2000" program files, or will i have to start over?

Thanks in advance for everyone's time!

In short, yes, you are SOL'd ;)

With a standard install, all customizations are kept in the user folder. (So different users can have different themes)

With a portable install, everything is in a single install folder. (So it can be copied easily and run without installing it)

There are some pretty nice pre-made themes available though -

Eole (CUI)
Georgia (new SMP)
StrigUI (DUI)
CaTRoX QWR
TripleQ

(I have not tried them all, just linking)

Everything can be in single folder even with not portable install. Just remove file user_profiles_enabled after installation.
