How do I transfer the cashbook to another computer?

 In

You can backup then restore your data onto another computer, as follows:-

  1. Click “File” then “Backup Cashbook Data” to make a backup of your data on your current computer (we recommend using a USB flash drive)
  2. Download and install the software onto the new computer
  3. Once the software is installed, put the backup into the new computer and start Cashbook Complete
  4. Choose “Restore” (if prompted), otherwise choose “Restore From Backup” from the “File” menu

Restoring from a backup in this way means that both your data and registration are reinstated to the new computer you’re working on, so there is no need for unlock codes.

If you’re restoring a registered file, then it will remain registered on the new machine.  If you’re restoring an unregistered file (on a trial basis), then it will continue to remain on a trial on the new machine.

Please don’t start a new Cashbook file from scratch after re-installing the software on the new computer.  You must restore your data from a backup as outlined above in order to preserve your registration. Starting a new Cashbook file means the new one needs to be registered (purchased) separately to your original one.
