"Replace" remote on Harmony? 880 to Ultimate One?

Decided to pick up an Ultimate One to replace my dead 880. Using the 7.7.0 software. Replace Remote doesn't work. When I plug in the USB, the new One is not recognized. Am I out of luck? Is there a work around to import my devices and settings from the 880? Lots of work on customizations...

Can't go smoothly from those old generation remotes to the newer ones.

Got it! Installed the new software, it accessed my old account, and copied everything perfectly. All I did was try and sign in with my old Harmony login, a popup came up and told me that my account was the old one and asked if I wanted to import. Easy!

Zero issues going from a 15 year old 880 to the Harmony Ultimate One.

They must have updated that. It's been several years, but when I went from an 890 to a 900, I started from scratch. Sorry for the bad info.

No worries, I've been on the trailing edge for a long time. I refused to replace my 880s, I just didn't like the layout of the newer ones. 24 hours in with the Ultimate One, I'm pretty happy. The DVR function buttons are in a bad location at the top, but I'll survive.
