Migrate Autocad LT 2011 User Settings

Greetings and a Happy New Year to all.

Our first installation of the year is a migration which will go well (im sure of that) but I have a user that works heavily in Autocad LT 2011. As he will be having a new computer is there a way of migrating his design library, templates, pen settings, title sheets and printer settings?

Thanks In advance Simon

AutoCAD has a migrate system settings program built in that you should be able to use to migrate the settings in to the new version of the program, I am unsure if the LT version of AutoCAD has the program.

If you have the program it should be found here:
C:\Program Files\Autodesk\AutoCAD LT 2011\AdMigrator.exe

without the application the only other thing to do is to copy the CUI file and the profile settings into the new AutoCAD and keep your fingers crossed, I have mixed results trying to transfer settings from one version to another so I generally do not attempt it.

run the command CUI within AutoCAD 2011
within the 'Customize User Interface' window click the 'Transfer' tab
within this program you can select items on the left to transfer into a new .CUI file that can then be imported into AutoCAD 2012 later on

to transfer the settings run the OP command within AutoCAD 2011
within the 'Options' window select the 'Profiles' tab
the profile on the left that is highlighted is the profile currently being used, with this profile highlighted click the 'Export' button on the right to save this profile.
Then within AutoCAD 2012 you can Import this profile into the program
