How can I make my Cashbook data available on more than one computer?
If you want to install Cashbook on a new (second) computer, remember that it will initially install as a demonstration version and it will need to be registered within 30 days. This is not normally a problem, but if in doubt, please contact Practical Systems to see where you stand with regards to multiple installations.
Step 1 - backup your existing data
Note: that for each option discussed below, you can backup to a local folder and then choose the Backup to Practical Systems Data Warehouse option to make the restore process on the new computer simpler.
A. Cashbook Connect
Backup Individual Companies
A. Cashbook Platinum
Backup an Individual Company or All Companies
Step 2 - install Cashbook on another computer
Step 3 - Restore your data into the new Cashbook installation
For each backup file created in Step 1, restore the data into the new Cashbook installation. If you are restoring a company or companies into Cashbook Platinum, ensure that you have each company already created, ready to receive the data.
If you have done a multi-company backup, ensure you use the multi-company restore option.
If you have any problems or questions please contact Practical Systems.
