Transferring Your License to a New Machine

No matter what product you are using, whether it is QuikCalc, DebtCalc, Retire!, VehiCalc or FirstResponse, it is very easy to transfer your license to a new machine, along with all of your data. Simply follow these steps:

  1. Install the program on your new machine. If you need to download again, click here if you have a current version, or click here, if you are using an old version.
  2. Once installed, register it with your old registration number.
  3. If you have the Premium, Preofessional or Office Edition of a product, create a user id and password when prompted.
  4. You should now be able to use the program on your new machine.
  5. On your old machine, run the program and from the File menu, select Backup Data File. If you see a message telling you to close all windows, make sure you have closed everything within your program (most people forget the Solve for Missing Number Calculator).
  6. Follow the prompts on the screen to create a copy of your database.
  7. Once completed, take this file to your new computer (it will not fit on a floppy disk). You can do this by transferring it to a shared network drive, copying it on a CD, or transferring it to a USB Flash Drive.
  8. On your new computer, run the program and select Restore Data File from your File menu.
  9. Follow the prompts and select the file from step 7.
  10. Once the data has been restored, restart the program. If you are using the Premium or Office Editions you will be prompted to enter your OLD user id and password that you used on the old machine.
  11. You should now have access to your old data on your new machine.
  12. On your old machine, go to your Start menu, All Programs, Slateboard Software and select your program directory. There should be an uninstall option there. Select this and follow the prompts to uninstall the software.

You are now done!
