Moving Beersmith 2 to different computer
« on: November 22, 2015, 04:59:47 PM »
I might be over-thinking this one.  I want to move my Beersmith2 to a different computer.  I currently have the software installed on my desktop and a laptop.  I recently upgraded my laptop and need to transfer my Beersmith software.  Any tips?  Will I have problems with the limit on 2 computers for the software?  Since I've got your attention I have one more question.  I've done a poor job of syncing my files between my laptop and my desktop, anyone have any tips?

Thanks for any advice

When I upgraded my computer last year, I just compressed the BeerSmith folder (I keep all my files in that folder) and moved it to my new laptop.  You need to make sure your saved files is in the BeerSmith folder where the program resides and not in your 'my documents' folder.
