I'm trying to copy hotkeys from one computer to another...both running Maya 2011 x64. The computer that I am trying to copy from is Vista and the computer that I'm trying to copy to is Windows 7...so maybe its impossible because of the different OS. I tried copying userHotkeys.mel from one to the other and it didn't work. Maybe there are more files that I need to copy over? Any ideas.

You'll also need to copy userRunTimeCommands.mel

its not working even with that file. Tried copying all the files and even that didn't work. Is there possibly some files in the Program folder that I need to copy over also?

No, that shouldn't be necessary. Where did you copy them from?

copied them from the documents/maya/2011/prefs. It looks like there some other file that Maya is looking at and ignoring these files. I also tried editing some of the original files in wordpad...adding some of the lines from the file that I'm trying to copy over and it ignores those.

You can check that you're looking at the right directory by running

getenv MAYA_APP_DIR;

in the Script Editor;

I have the right directory...Another thing I just thought of is that I have 2 versions of Maya still installed 2010 and 2011. Maybe that is causing some conflict?
