I want to upgrade from the free version of ADW Launcher to ADW Launcher EX. How can I do this without having to re-create all of my app settings and widgets?

Here is a partial solution (it doesn't copy widgets).

You must save the ADW settings as a backup in the free version, then restore them in the paid version.

  1. Open ADW Launcher
  2. Context menu > ADWSettings > System > Backup and Restore > Backup
  3. Open ADW Launcher EX
  4. Context menu > ADWSettings > System > Backup and Restore > Restore > (choose the backup time stamp you just created)
  5. Context menu > ADWSettings > System > Restart ADW
  6. Now you'll have to re-create your widgets.
