Best way to migrate MPLAB X to new system

I am building a new computer.  Should I copy my C:\Users\Rob\MPLABXProjects folder to my new computer before I install MPLab X so that it will find all of my existing projects?  Or should I install MPLAB X before I copy over my User files?

    I always install X first.
    I always use a specified userdir specific for each version X I install
    I create a separate folder for each version X projects ( I use the version as part of the folder name
    I "COPY" any projects from previous versions to the new project folder
    All this is so I can revert to a previous version X with minimal effects from the new version
