OPTION ONE: Restoring Data from a previous backup:

IMPORTANT! Backups must reside in the "local" backup folder on the new computer to be restored.

On the old computer, go to C:\Program Files\HRcalendar Software\Data Backup or C:\Program Files (x86)\HRcalendar Software\Data Backup and copy the most recent backup.

On the new computer, go to C:\Program Files\HRcalendar Software\Data Backup or C:\Program Files (x86)\HRcalendar Software\Data Backup and paste the copied backup.

Type Demo to continue if prompted. From within HR Calendar click on File > Restore to get a pop-up window listing the backup that you just pasted.

Select the appropriate backup and click Open and then close and reopen the program to view the restored data.

 

OPTION TWO: Copy your data from the old computer and paste it into the new one.

  1. Open the old computer and go to C:\Program Files \ Microsoft SQL Server \ MSSQL.1\ MSSQL \ Data.
  2. The two files that constitute the database are: Hrcalendar.mdf and Hrcalendar_Log.LDF.
  3. Copy these two files and paste them into the same folder on the new computer.

Upgrade the software: 

After renewing the license. Copy the product key you received from us in the invoice e-mail. Open HRcalendar and click on Help > Enter Product Key and paste-in the key. Click OK and now, if you open an employee's calendar, you will see that the next year is now available.
