Hi

 

I have Bartender 10.1 setup on a PC and is running fine. I need to move the software to another PC (without purchasing another license).

 

Can somebody point me in the right direction please?

 

I currently have it setup to connect to an access database, and we only have one label template setup.

 

Will in transfer over the template and data sources?

 

Thanks

 

Mark

Install BarTender as a Trial edition on the second PC.  Copy across the document and database you wish to use and test that it all works okay on the new computer.  Note that you might need to relink the database connection if the new database file location is different from the original.  When all is okay deactivate the license on the old computer, and then use the PKC to activate on the new computer.

Thanks......the database resides on a network so that wouldn't move. If I copy the .btw file to the new PC, does that contain the label template plus all of the connection and query settings?

The BarTender document should contain all the bits and pieces you need.  Obviously if the connection to the DB on the network is consistent between the two computers then there shouldn't be a problem connecting to it.

I am planning to upgrade our working local computer from Bartender Professional  2016 to 2021.It is the only computer using the software with a standalone printer. It's not on the network. I was instructed to install and test a trial version in another computer and see if everything ok. The test computer is X64 and it has 4GB ram.  Do I bring the working printer over, install it  and download printer drivers from bartender website on the test computer?  Do I copy label/template files from current computer to the test computer and I guess put them in  the same drive location name to test. Where do I find them?  

Once done testing, I want to upgrade the working computer with Bartender 2021.

Please correct me if I am wrong and add anything I might have missed for this project. I want it to be successful. Do I leave the Add Microsoft SQL Server Express option checked? I can't find Bartender Professional Trial.

Thank you very much.

Carlos: To begin, you should consult this article about updating BarTender: https://support.seagullscientific.com/hc/en-us/articles/360056301453-Updating-to-BarTender-2021

I suggest you copy across your existing documents, and install the appropriate printer driver to test on the test PC to make sure all is running as you expect.

Note that there is only one installable software image of BarTender.  It is the Product key Code (PKC), that you use to activate the software, which dictates what edition the software will run as.  A Trial license will run as the Enterprise edition.  You can check the edition features being used in the software or document you're designing, in Designer, via the "Help>Edition Requirements" menu item. Installing SQL Server Express for hosting the BarTender System Database is entirely optional; choose the "Advanced" installation option should you wish to have the choice on whether to install it or not.  Its main use is for a document management repository (Enterprise feature), and for print job and other logging (supported although limited in the Professional edition).
