When you buy a new computer, you will want to MOVE/COPY your CLIP data to the new computer. To properly move CLIP from one computer to another, you must first backup the CLIP program from your old computer in order to start the process of moving it to the new computer.
You can determine where your CLIP program was installed on the old system by right clicking your desktop shortcut to CLIP & clicking Properties. This is the folder you where your CLIP is located.
If you are setting up a server, make sure you set up the same folder hierarchy as you had on the old server (e.g. - CLIPv was in a folder called Netclip, configure a Netclip folder on your new system).
Click on the Start Menu; or for Windows 8 or above users, click the Folder icon at the bottom of your screen.
Click computer. If your CLIP is installed on this machine, you will want to double left click on the 'C:' drive. If it is not installed, look for your CLIP folder under the network locations heading.
Paste the CLIPv folder you just copied to your removable media to the local disk C: drive on your new computer (if it's a server, paste the CLIPv folder inside the Netclip folder).
- After copy & paste has completed, click Start menu (on Windows 8 or above click on the folder icon towards the bottom)
- Locate the CLIPv then CLIENT folder on the new computer.
- Right click on Setup Application or Setup.exe
Right click on it, and then select RUN AS ADMINISTRATOR.
