A friend of mine transferred minecraft from his computer to mine with a flash drive. How did he do that?

  1. I have two accounts, one of which had minecraft on it at this given time. The new account had no such game. So when my friend transferred the game, I could use it with no problem at all. I want to know how he did it.

  1. I just did this just over an hour ago, follow my directions EXACTLY, unless of course I make a stupid oversight.
    -turn on your computer and log in
    -insert your flash drive
    -open up start and click on the button that says run
    -type in (without the quotations) "%appdata%"
    this should open a window that says at the top "application data"
    -click on start again
    -go to "my computer"
    -double click on your flash drive
    -go back to the first window we opened
    -RIGHT click on the .MInecraft folder
    *-click copy NOT copy shortcut
    *-go to your flash drive window
    *-RIGHT click on the background of the WINDOW
    *-click on paste NOT paste shortcut
    -then go to start and click on search
    -type in Minecraft (make sure you search ALL files INCLUDING hidden ones
    -RIGHT click on the minecraft icon (it should have at least 100kb on it
    -repeat steps 9-12 (marked by *s) but for the shortcut
    -Safely eject the flash drive

    after these steps you will go to the other computer/account, go to application data, and paste the .minecraft then go to the desktop and paste the shortcut to minecraft

    final step-Enjoy!
