AllTunes bookmarks: transportable from one PC to another?

I use AllTunes ( on 2 different PCs, at 2 different locations. Sometimes, I'll bookmark artists/songs/CDs while using one PC, but forget to add them to the bookmarks on the other PC. Is there an AllTunes file that I can edit or copy & paste so I can have the same bookmarks on each installation?

I know I could just use the "checklist" feature on, and I know I could install AllTunes on a portable HDD, but I'd prefer to have 2 separate installations on 2 separate PCs.

It looks like bookmarks are stored in the folder:

C:\Documents and Settings\[WindowsUser]\Application Data\allTunes\allTunes\[AllTunesUser]

where [WindowsUser] is your Windows login and [AllTunesUser] is your AllTunes login. The two bookmarks files are in Borland Database Engine format (i.e. binary, not plain text). There are third-party apps that claim to edit these files (xBaseView for instance) but it would probably be more trouble than it's worth.

You're right - it does look to be more trouble than it's worth. I'll throw it on a portable HDD, and deal with it that way.

Best answer: Update:

YES, bookmarks from the AllTunes client can be moved from PC to PC. When viewing bookmarks, just right-click: Export. It will export the bookmarks as a .csv file, then take that file to the other PC, open AllTunes, go to the Bookmark tab, right-click: Import.
