How Do I... > How do I Move ClipMate To A New Computer?
If you get a new PC (for whatever reason - we've heard hundreds) you'll certainly want to take ClipMate with you. This also applies to those of you recovering from hard drive crashes, rebuilds after virus attack, etc..
The process is simple:
6. Enter your registration key. If you saved registration information in step 1, your top clip in the InBox should be titled "About ClipMate". It contains the license, plus other data. Just remove all lines except for the two that contain your name/key, then you can go to Help | Enter Registration Key, and it should see your key on the clipboard and validate it for you. Otherwise, try to find your registration confirmation e-mail that we sent when you ordered ClipMate. If you don't have your name/key combination recorded anywhere, we can help if you send an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject: "ClipMate Key Request". Please include all relevant information, including your full name, business name, address, present and past e-mail addresses.
* You can transfer the ZIP file to the new PC using any method necessary. Including and not limited to: over a network, CD-R, ZIP disks, USB Flash devices, digital cameras (memory card acts like a disk drive), e-mail, laplink, etc.. It probably WON'T fit on a floppy diskette.
** You can move from ClipMate 6 to ClipMate 7 as you do this, as ClipMate 7 can restore a database created with ClipMate 6.
