I've just backed up my catalogue from an XP desktop and used it to restore to a new windows 8.1 desktop. I'm using PSE9 on both machines. I backed the catalogue to hard disk on the XP machine and used dell easy file transfer cable to copy the backup (full) directory to 8.1 machine. I restored catalog to new location but keeping same file structure. Everything is restored and all the tags, stacks, metadata is available. However every time I use the organiser after restoring the catalog to try to create a new album pse9 crashes. Time stamps show that the catalogue has been created in c:\users\username\pictures and is being used. There is a catalog in program data and a couple of the files have a new time stamp but not the catalog itself.
