Moving settings from Mac to PC

After many years I’ve decided to move eve off the Mac and back onto a new pc.

Can anyone give me a few pointers where to find the settings files on the Mac for the ui, overview, etc and what the equivalent destination is on the pc?

For anyone else who may need this at some point, here’s the great advice I got from Senior GM Mechanic (thanks!)

You can take a backup of your setting on your Mac, here is how:

Open the finder.
Press L-shift + cmd + G and then copy and paste the following.
~/Library/Application Support/EVEOnline/p_drive/Local Settings/Application Data/CCP/EVE/SharedCache/wineenv/drive_c/Users/
Open the folder name after your Mac user account. Then open the following chain, Local Settings > Application Data > CCP > EVE/
Copy the folder c_tq_tranquility to where you want to save your backup.

Now replace the files on your PC with the ones from your Mac.

Press and hold the Windows key on your keyboard while pressing R (this will open a run window).
Copy and paste the following line into the run window: %LOCALAPPDATA%\CCP\EVE
Copy your folder contents from the Mac backup folder to the PC folder called something like (c_games_eve_sharedcache_tq_tranquility)
Make sure to overwrite any files currently in the folder.
Run the game and see if your settings still work.
