You can use the following steps to transfer PsychBook to another system:

1. Open PsychBook and choose "Unregister this computer..." from the Help menu.

2. Copy the following files from the old system to the same location on the new system:

    - your client database file (by default called "PsychBook client file.psy" or "current clients.psy")

    - the following support data:
      Macintosh
        - Application support folder. Located at:
        Code: Select all
        home/Library/Application Support/PsychBook CMS
        - Application preferences file. Located at:
        Code: Select all
        home/Library/Preferences/PsychBook CMS 2.0 prefs

      Windows (you may need to "show invisible files" in the Folder Options control panel):
        - Application support folder. Located at:
        Code: Select all
        (user)\AppData\Roaming\PsychBook CMS

3. Install PsychBook on your new system, launch, choose "Activate with Serial Number..." from the Help menu.

4. Enter your registration name and code.

5. Choose "Set Date Source..." from the File menu, click the arrow button on the upper-right of the window and choose "Select File".

6. Navigate in the open file dialog window in order to select the client file you copied over (usually in your Documents folder), and click the Open button.

7. Make sure the "Data from new source" option is selected at the bottom of the window and click the Set button.
