I have PvZ on my desktop, but I feel like putting it on my laptop (admittedly, to play during boring classes). Is there anyway to move the profile? Its all under steam so I figured it was just a matter of moving files.

install steam on your laptop, log in steam and download it.
If you don't have intrawebz on the laptop, you probably have to copy the files or something, I'm not sure though.

The save game data will be on your computer at:

C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\plants vs zombies\userdata

Copy those file onto your laptop after you install PvZ through steam.

I would like to know this too, and I do not have a \userdata folder.

For vista and steam, the location is here:

C:\ProgramData\Steam\PlantsVsZombies\userdata

Does this method work for anyone? I've copied the files to no avail, so I copied the whole folder. Still nothing. As a last ditch effort I copied the entire directory, and still no dice. I've gone so far as to share the install folder over my home network and run it from a mapped drive, and as you might guess, still the same old profile with nothing unlocked.

Dito, I copied that file myself and no dice.

I asked about it in another thread as well....not sure why it doesn't work.
Games are like life. If it's a good one, you really don't want it to end. Winning isn't everything, enjoying the game as much as possible is.

Encrypted to only work in one computer, probably.

Good luck getting everything again.
