Flow is not loading after project copied to another pc

I would like to copy my app with embedded node-red to another pc, but when I start the app on the new pc node-red is not loading my flows. Everything is loading perfectly, I have all the installed community nodes in the palette. Also I have my original flows_DESKTOP-CF323HT.json file in the folder, but node-red ignores it and creates a new empty flows_DESKTOP-B521B7T.json file and starting up with the empty flow.
I know that you can import flows via the editor, but thats not what I am looking for.
I just want to send a zip file with the entire app and than run it on the new pc.

unless you specify the flow on the command line or set it in settings.js it attempts to load flows_HOSTNAME.json

You have 4 choices...

  • rename the Pc
  • rename the flows
  • specify flow file on command line
  • edit settings.js
