Migrate EstLite

Post by John » Thu 29 Nov, 2007 8:54 pm

  1. On Old Computer: Backup (Options>Data>Backup) to USB stick.
  2. On New Computer: Download and run latest EstLite (https://estlite.com), you will be asked if you want to restore data, choose YES and restore from your USB stick.
If you have a very old copy of EstLite (without the Backup feature) see here
To migrate EstLite from XP or W98 to Vista or Windows 7: -

On your old machine use Windows Explorer to navigate to:
C:\Program Files\Est
Copy the following files and folders to your USB drive.
(Also logo.bmp if you have it)

Download and install the latest version of EstLite on the Vista/Win7 machine and use Windows Explorer to locate Public\Documents\
And copy those files and folders that you have just placed on your USB drive, in to the Est folder.

(If you have used a CD rather than a USB to move the files, then, after the transfer you must right-click the Est folder on the Vista machine and select Properties and uncheck the read-only box, and in the ensuing dialog, indicate that the changes are to be applied to sub-folders and files.)
