Switching from 32-bit to 64-bit Vivaldi - How to keep settings?



  • Hi

    I'm using Vivaldi for over a year on all my systems and I'm super happy with it. I have the 64-bit version installed on all newer installs (6 months). However, on my main production system I still have the 32-bit version. What's the correct (best way) to migrate to the 64-bit version without loosing all settings and bookmarks?

    Thanks for any input.



  • Settings will stay and not be changed by switching.
    Normally no backup needed, but it is no fault to have one.
    Open %LOCALAPPDATA%\Vivaldi\User Data\ in Explorer
    Backup the folder User Data

    Then
    Uninstall 32bit Vivaldi
    Install 64bit Vivaldi



  • @gwen-dragon Thank you very much for the quick and detailed response.



  • Once again, thanks to @gwen-dragon for the help, and to @rhk for posting the question. Whole procedure took me about 3 minutes; so far so good.
    Wondering why the download page does not mention the version offered in the download box ("Free download 1.12 for Windows"). I didn't think to follow the "different platforms" link when I initially downloaded the install.
