Question

Move WaW to new pc

So I hope this is the right place to ask but when moving WaW to a new PC how do I copy the files over to it from my existing pc without messing up? I know its a noob question but i want to be sure on it before i mess up, and when transferred will steam recognize the game without issue?

If you're only looking to move your profile (to save rank/weapon attachments etc.) to the new pc,  search like zuko said   C:\Users\Name\AppData\Local\Activision\CODWaW and once there, make a copy of the "players" folder. You can just simply save it to an USB memory stick, and once you have installed cod waw to your new pc, search for the same "players" folder like earlier, delete it and replace it with the copy you made. You will keep all of your kills / rank etc. this way.

Also some players have had hard time finding the path for the activision folder since it might vary slightly depending on the version of windows etc. if you can't find it you can just simply open your files, click windows (C:) and there type "activision" in the search bar on top right and you should find it.

i tryed that too before 1 month or so,but it didnt work's,maybe i dont do something well.

but i can see on the path you send you need to copy hole " \CodWaW " folder? if i remember i was copy only the "Players" folder maybe this was the reason didnt work on my pc..

I am a bit too late but the only thing you have to do is going to "your pc" folder, search users, app data, local data, activision,players, profiles and copy paste profiles to create a backup
