Answers to the most frequently asked pre-sales questions:
1. Will your Software work on an Apple Mac computer?
We do not currently offer any native Mac applications. It is usually possible to run our software bye using a PC emulator for the Mac called Parallels. See www.parallels.com for more information. Please download the demo for the program you are interested in purchasing to make sure it will work on your Mac + Parallels configuration. We do not currently offer any application for the iPad or iPhone.
2. Can I put the software on my desktop and on a laptop for traveling? Can I move the data between -- using backup for example?
Yes you can install and use the software on more than one computer. With a purchase of: HomeManage, CoinManage, CurrencyManage or StampManage you will receive an activation code that works on up to 2 computers.
An AssetManage software purchase is done by computer. So the 1 user license will work on 1 computer, the 2 user license will work on 2 computers, etc..
To move data between the computers, you can either: a) backup the data to a ZIP file (FILE > BACKUP DATABASE) b) Take the most recent backup ZIP file (FILE > MANAGE BACKUP FILES) c) copy the ZIP file to the new computer and use (FILE > RESTORE) on the target machine to load the data and images you were working with.
Another way to share data between 2 machines is to set the Data Directory to a folder on a portable external hard drive. Then move the portable hard drive between the 2 machines.
HomeManage is a single user program that can also be used in the manner described above. Use our AssetManage software for multi-user capabilities as well as many additional features.
3. How often is StampManage, CoinManage, HomeManage or CurrencyManage updated? What are the costs involved.
