2.7. How can I move the software to a new computer?

To move this software to a new computer, you will need to perform the following tasks.

Install the original software on the new computer.  This will create a new copy of the software along with a new blank set of data files.

On the old computer, run the software and perform a Backup of the data files. You can do this by selecting the option from the File menu in the program. Select Backup/Restore Data, then Backup Data. This will create a .zip file of all the files used in the Star Check Writer program. It prompts you for a name for the file to be created for your backup. Save this .zip file to a flash drive or other portable media that will allow you to copy this to the new computer.

On the new computer, run the software and perform a Restore of the data files. You can do this by selecting the option from the File menu in the program. Select Backup/Restore Data, then Restore Data. This will prompt you for the location of the .zip file which you created using the Backup routine. Point to this file, then click on the Open button. You should be prompted to Replace the files. Select Replace All. This should bring all your data over from your previous copy.

You will need to enter the Registration codes to unlock the new install into a registered version. Be sure to have this handy so you can perform this task. After installing and restoring the data files, click on the Windows Start button, then All Programs, then Star Check Writer, then Utilities, then Register Program. You will be prompted for your User Name and Key.  Use the information that was sent to you, and you should receive a message, Key is valid and has been stored.

If you installed a new printer on this new machine, you will need to update this in the program.
