I don't use CLCL, but I'm pretty sure it's a portable app. As such it should not be in either of the "program files" folders, as it cannot modify files in those folders.
Re backup of portable apps, I tend to just copy the whole app folder and zip it, adding the version number or date in the zip name.
Hopefully some CLCL user can confirm the above, and maybe be more specific re backup.

as Tomos said, just unpack to and run from C:\CLCL
Also remember that CLCL hasn't been updated for 3.3 years.

Don't install it in program files, it needs to be able to write to a sub folder (history and templates) - Move it to c:\portable\clcl or something like that ("Documents" should also work) - you should have a "user folder" in the old CLCL folder on your other computer so if your user name was
screenshot1  you should have "clcl\screenshot1" in there you will find

regist.dat -> templates
clcl.ini -> duh
history.dat -> clipboard history

copy those files to your new "user name folder" (close CLCL first of course).

THanks for Info .. all i actually had backed up to 'save' was the .ini ( and put this .ini into my New Pc with CLCL )
But i see it needs the 3 files you showed .. Doh !!!!!!!!!!!!!

CLCL is a portable app:
create a fresh copy of the programme somewhere completely different
  • Close your current one if running
  • Do whatever it is you're suggesting above -  copy relevant files/over
  • Run new version, check if successful
  • Finally I would delete second install to avoid confusion
