With each new version of ViaCAD, I have to re-establish the customizations that I used in the last version. To save you some time here is a list of 2 things I have to set up.

1. I have custom templates for Model-to-Sheet. These template files need to be copied into the new version:

C:\Program Files\Punch! Software\ViaCAD 3D 10\Templates\ModelToSheet\templatefile.vcp
/Applications/ViaCAD 2D3D 10.app/Contents/Resources/Templates/ModelToSheet/templatefile.vcp

Others have pointed out that this is generally bad practice to put user-specific files into the program-container.
These files should go into: ~user/Library/Application Support/com.encore.viacadprovX/

I don't think this will ever moved for a variety of reasons (backward compatibility for one).

2. I have a custom set of parameters in the Dimension Standards Manager that has to get moved.

These are stored in "StdDim.ini" in ~user/Library/Application Support/com.encore.viacadprovX/
so theses need to get moved to the new Application Support directory

I don't know the exact path for Windows - sorry.

I hope this saves someone some time.
