Steps to move your product to a new or different computer

Follow these steps to move your settings and preferences to a new computer for a seamless upgrade.

1. Update your product on the old computer – recommended

This step ensures that all of your settings will be transferred to the new computer. Download and install the latest release of your product on your old computer.  See steps on the product release page.

On your old computer, create a file containing your settings.

For Excel based apps, use the Export Settings button on the product’s custom Ribbon tab to create your settings *.DAT file:

For most non-Excel based apps, and when using older versions of Excel, look for a similarly worded menu option.

3. Install the Product on your new computer

On the new computer, download and install the latest free release from the product release page.

4. Import your settings

Transfer the *.DAT file created in step 2 from your old computer to your new computer.  Then import it using the Import Settings button on the Ribbon or menu.
