Title:
HOW TO:  Move FLEETMATE to a New PC

Overview:
 
If you have been using FLEETMATE on one PC and need to move it and your database file to a new PC, you will need to install FLEETMATE on your new PC.  If your database was located on the local disk (C: drive) of your prior PC, you will also need to copy your prior database file from your prior PC to your new PC.  If your FLEETMATE database file is stored on a file server, you do not need to copy your database file.  Follow the steps below.

  
On your CURRENT PC:

  1. Start FLEETMATE and note the database filename and path displayed in the titlebar at the top of the main window.  You will need this for step #4 below.

  2. Click Help | About... and note your 16-digit registration key.

  3. Close FLEETMATE.

  4. Unless your database file is located on a server, copy your database file (.fdb) from your old PC, using the path you noted in step #1, to removable media (e.g. CD-R/RW, Flashdrive, Zip Disk, etc.).  

On your NEW PC:

  1. Download and install FLEETMATE on your new PC using the default settings.

  2. Unless your database file is located on a server, copy your database file (e.g. FLEETMATE.fdb) from your removable media to the "C:\Users\Public\FLEETMATE" folder on your new PC.

  3. Start FLEETMATE.

  4. Enter your Company Name and Registration key, and click OK.

 
If your database name was something other than "FLEETMATE.fdb", and/or if your database file is located on a server, you will need to use the File | Database | Open... menu function to open the database.
