In your main XWA directory, there is a file which is the same as your Pilot's name and ends with .plt.
Save that file to a disk, and you can install XWA to your new computer. Then, just place that file in the main XWA directory on your new computer, and all your pilot's info will be saved. (The file named config.cfg is the file that saves all your options in your Options page. Transfer it along with your .plt file to keep all your configurations.)
