How To Migrate Your Database From The Old Installation to the New Installation:

If you are upgrading and have already captured data in the old program, you need to migrate that data to the new location following these instructions. This will also migrate your activation if you have activated the software.

  1. Install 4.0.1 to a new folder location. Scroll down for download and installation instructions. In the example below we installed it to C:\NMCollectorJE_4.
  2. Delete the newly installed \NMCollectorJE.app\Contents\Resources\nmcswDB folder in your new installation directory.

  3. Copy the nmcswDB folder located in your old installation directory to the \NMCollectorJE.app\Contents\Resources\ folder in your new installation directory. Also copy the app.props and branding.props files. These are essential if you have encrypted your database. Here is a screen capture of the nmcswDB folder in our old installation directory. If you have activated the software, this will also bring over your activation to your new installation.
