I want to transfer all eM Client data from my old Windows 7 computer to my new Windows 10 computer. I have the free version allowing use on 1 computer. How do I install eM Client on the new computer without deactivating it on the old one which I need to continue to use until I have successfully achieved the transfer? Then, what is the easiest way to transfer? Both computers are on the same network if that helps??? Keep it simple! I am a silver surfer!!!
1 make sure you have the install for the version that you have and the license for it.
any special themes that you used if not the standards ones
/menu/help/about version you are running
If not download it from https://www.emclient.com/release-history
If you cannot find license ask support as it is attached to your email account in there system
2 run emclient backup and note where the backup file goes
/menu/tools/settings/general/backup shows where it will go … you can change this
/menu/file/backup runs the backup get a cup of coffee takes a while
3 Copy the collected files about to the new machine.
recommend using a folder for all software like c:\data\Software\ software-name \
as a place for all software that you obtain as a storage place for the installs and license
for the future
4 Install emclient on new machine
5 in new machine after you install
use restore from backup /menu/file/restore
6 test it out
7 apply the license on new machine
