How to transfer My playlist from PC to PC?

I need to transfer My Playlist of My Music to a new laptop (Acer), installed Audirvana without problem and the Qobuz playlists followed but I lost the My Playlists from the My Music? Where are these stored on a Windows 11 Pc? I guess I need to copy them and somehow export to the new laptop??
Many thanks in advance for your inputs and help!!

As far as I know those playlists are stored in Audirvana’s own database.

Go to Settings\Library

Here you can see:

  1. Audirvana Database file path. In that location Audirvana‚Äôs SQL database file is stored. The file is called ‚ÄėAudirvanaDatabase.sqlite‚Äô. I am on Windows (just like you) but for a Mac this may differ. Normally this file is in the user directory of Windows (but I changed the location myself) so you will see a different path on your system. You can change the location with the ‚Äėchange‚Äô button next to it. I regurlaly make a backup of this file in case of calamities.

  2. Below that you see buttons to backup and/or restore playlists, favorites and artists pictures. When you click ‚Äėbackup‚Äô you can define a filename where to save. You can move this file to your other PC. When you click ‚Äėrestore‚Äô on the other Audirvana on your other PC you can restore this file. IMPORTANT a playlist is only a collection of file paths, so this only works if the file paths to your library are the same on your new PC.

In your case the normal procedure would be to follow the steps as described in point 2.

Alternatively you can also copy the whole *.sqlite database file (see point 1) to your new PC and tell the new Audirvana where your SQL database file is (Settings\Library\Audirvana database file path ‚Üí change). This will restore your complete music library including playlists. Also this only works if the file paths to your music are the same on your new PC as on your old PC.
