Moving ADM to a New Computer

I have ADM on an old computer and I want to move it to a new computer. How do I do this?

If you have upgrades or modules to add to your ADM, wait until after you have successfully moved your ADM to the new location. Follow the instructions on the ADM setup CD to add your upgrade, module, or license.

Review each situation and select the one that best describes your situation. Remember that the descriptions offered might use words different from those you might use.

All situations assume these conditions to be true:

  1. You have a computer where ADM is or was installed (the "old" computer), you want to install ADM on a different computer (the "new" computer); and
  2. You want to transfer the entered forms from the old computer to the new one; and
  3. You know how to use certain features or programs within Windows®, especially "My Computer" or Explorer, and the Control Panel. Without these skills, you cannot implement the solutions below; and
  4. You know how to access, and have proper security rights to access, the folders where ADM is located on your old and new computers. Without this knowledge or these rights, you cannot implement the solutions below.

The chart below helps you to select the correct solution for your situation.

If you do not want to transfer the entered forms from the old computer, stop here and install ADM on the new computer.

If your ADM is on a server and you want to allow access to it from a workstation, stop here and complete the Workstation Install process described in the "How To Install.txt" document on your ADM CD.
