The LIF3 file does not contain the key’s media, only references to where the media can be found. Therefore if you need to transfer a LIF3 file to another computer you should also copy the media directories.

Note

If the LIF3 file and media directories are moved to another computer it may be necessary to modify the reference to where the key’s media can be found on the new computer. You can do this by opening the LIF3 file in a standard text editor, searching "for media base_path", and editing the path name of the Media directory.

For example:

<media base_path="C:\program files\Lucid3\my key\Media">

Should be changed to:

<media base_path="{new_computer’s_path}\Media">

Where new_computer’s_path is the full path name including drive letter of the Media directory on the new computer.
