I am relatively new to this and only have a couple of switches that I use to turn lights on and off.  I have been using an Aeotec ZStick Gen2 with AxialControl software.  I have purchased a Gen5 stick and would like to move devices and scenes to the new stick without starting from scratch.  Is this possible?  I tried to use the "Transfer Network to new Controller" command but it appears to hang when it tells me to place the new controller in Include mode.  Any help would be appreciated.

I know it's not what you want to hear, but I would recommend starting from scratch. I suggest it because I rarely see a transfered network function properly after everything is said and done.

If you do choose to start from scratch, you'll need to go around to each switch and run an "exclude" using either USB stick. Once you do this, you'll be able to re-include using the new USB stick.
