Here's a few tips to help smooth the upgrade from URL Organizer 2 to Bookmark Buddy.
Purchasing an upgrade license
When you come to purchase your license, make sure you log back into your existing account with OSoLiS (you'll find links to request a log-in reminder if you need one). You will then automatically be offered the upgrade price.
Your Personal License Register
When you purchase a license for Bookmark Buddy OSoLiS will send you a new Personal License Register (a file called licences.rv1). This replaces your existing Personal License Register as it holds details of all your licences. Follow the instructions in the e-mail, or here. Be sure to exit URL Organizer and Bookmark Buddy before you try to install your Personal License Register. If you're not sure where to put the License Register, check About Bookmark Buddy under Bookmark Buddy's Help menu.
Importing your URL lists
Bookmark Buddy uses a completely different file format for its bookmark lists from URL Organizer's URL lists. Therefore one of the first things you need to do after installing Bookmark Buddy is to import your URL lists:
