How to Migrate data in Standalone SambaPOS ?

Hi,

I want to Migrate SambaPos from my old Laptop (windows XP) to my new PC (Windows 7) ,

I have downloaded and installed SambaPos on the new Computer but want to use our current config/dataset which is on the old laptop

Can someone please give me the steps to do so , I've browsed Qs but they refer only to SQL etc which is way beyond my abilities to understand.

 

Regards

I think we lacked information in question

SambaPOS V3? you are using CE or SQ? if CE copying the database and paste into another computer in my documents folder

Hi,

Thanks so much for response :

 

I'm using V2.99  .

 

Can you give me the names of the files ?

Is it Sambadata ?

 

If so do I just copy it to location in new computer and start SambaPOS ?

 

Thanks again for such a quick response,

 

Rgds,

N

Still not migrating V2 to V3, this project is in progress, you need to install the V3 and would have to register all over again or wait for this migration tool, it is worthwhile to use this incredible system V3

Look for SambaData2.sdf. Should be in [My Documents]/SambaPOS2/SambaData2.sdf

Copy it to C:\Users\{USER}\Documents\SambaPOS2

Run SambaPOS and set your data connection string under Manage->Settings->Local Settings to

data source=C:\Users\{USER}\Documents\SambaPOS2\SambaData2.sdf

Save, and restart SambaPOS.

{USER} -> User profile that you are logged into Win7 as
