Back in April of 2014, Microsoft dropped support for Windows XP. For some companies, this isn’t an issue and their XP machines just keep on keeping on. For others, Microsoft’s lack of support updates poses potential security issues and it is time to upgrade to a new computer with a modern operating system.
If you are upgrading to a fancy new system, then the following instructions will guide you through moving your time card software from your old PC. It is important to note that the instructions are slightly different depending on whether you are moving the TimeClick Server/Database or a Client. You can determine which is on your XP computer by examining the color of the TimeClick icon. Blue is for Client. Grey is for Server/Database.
By the way, if you are interested in upgrading to our latest version of TimeClick, LE 12, this would be a great time to do so. You can check out pricing at http://www.timeclick.com/ecom-upgrade/order.php.
Note: Instructions are for TimeClick versions LE, LE SP1, and LE 12. You can check your version by opening TimeClick and selecting Help and About TimeClick.
In order to move your TimeClick License you must first get a transfer key from the old computer. A transfer key can be obtained in the server application of TimeClick (the grey icon) by following the steps below:
Unregister Your Current Server
Moving the Database
Registering Your New Server
If you are moving the TimeClick client then the first thing you need to do is unregister it. This will free up the license for when you install TimeClick on the new operating system.
Unregister the client
Install Client on New Computer
And that’s all there is to it. If you need any assistance, the TimeClick support team is happy to work with you to make sure everything is done properly. Just give them a call at (435) 753-4102 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
