Does anyone have an idea on how to move QFworks from one Newt to another? I keep getting the message that I can't run the package on the newt because I have never run the original version on it before.

Yes, when the company that wrote QFWorks initially came out with the
1.1.1 update, they put a copy protection of some sort that checks to see
if you had the original version before, which happened to be version
1.0. If not, then it won't let you use the 1.1.1 update. So, whenever I
wipe my external card, I always install the original QFWorks, then
launch NewtonWorks, quit, remove QFWorks and then install the 1.1.1
