I have a single user professonal edition.
It depends on the size of the database. Generally you would just need to copy both database and format files to a CD, or DVD disc, or an external hard drive.
Regarding your last question, you can have the software installed in two different machines.
It's easy to save your db's:
First: If you cannot see file extensions in Windows Explorer: make them visible (should be default...) by:
You have to find all files with extension .fil (databases), .fmt (database design)
So use in Windows start menu search files and folders.
Install Cardbox on your laptop (you can download) and enter your license number.
Return files to your desktop: same process.
Your last question: If you have a network (workgroup) at home, you leave the database on your laptop (for on office). You can use your desktop working across your network in your database on the laptop then.
ooh thanks bert, just seen your reply - will try all this
Okay - have successfully managed to back up the files to my USB hard drive - Thank you!!.. now need to install Cardbox on my laptop... but how? Don't think I got a CD ROM when I bought it all.. not sure where to find my licence number (I have found my serial number!)
You can download Cardbox from the website and enter your licence number. To get it you will have to open Cardbox, hopefully it is still installed in your old PC. No need to open a database. Go to Help and then to the About Cardbox tag. You will see your Serial Nº. there.
