I have purchased a new Computer. How can I install HomeManage on the new computer and retain all my data and images?
Here are instructions on moving HomeManage to a new machine:
In all cases you should install the program on the new machine. Do not
simply copy all the program files over. The setup program
must be run.
a) Do a backup (File > Backup Database..
b) In the Backup Save As
you can change the name of the backup file or accept the default name
c) then select (> Manage Backup Files from the main menu.
d) Take the most recent Zip file and transfer it to your new machine. You can do this by copying the ZIP file to a USB or external drive..or perhaps copying it to a shared
folder on your network that the new machine has access to.
e) Install and run HomeManage on your new machine.
f) Select (File > Restore..) from the main menu.
g) Select the ZIP file you backed up in the previous step and press the OPEN button.
If you are using an old version of HomeManage that does not have a backup command:
a) You should install the program on the new machine.
b) Then copy the ASSETS.MDB file from the old machine to overwrite the file on the new machine.
c) If you have been attaching your own images to asset records, copy all the JPG files in the AssetImages subdirectory
to the same Windows folder on the new machine. Note: The location of the ASSETS.MDB file is in the data folder as shown in the program
preferences. If you can't see the data folder above, This may be because Windows hides some directories by default. To change
