Default New Computer

So, I just bought a new desktop with the dreaded Windows 8. I have your program installed on my old Windows XP desktop. How do I go about downloading and installing it on the new one. I'll have to search but, somewhere, I may have the key info for the original install but it's been so long I'm not fully certain I'll find it.

I figured this out. Found the original email with the product key in it. Now to figure out how to move the database over to the new computer. Any ideas?

From within the original My Gun DB program click on File, then Database, then Backup DB. Transfer that saved file to your new computer. After you install MyGunDB on the new computer go to Restore DB and that should get you started.

Sorry about the delay -- I wasn't getting notices of forum updates due to a bad mail filter I had installed.

If you go to MyGunDB.com, you can download/install the latest version. As for your key, email me at alan@mygundb.com and I'll get you a new one as I need your name and email to generate it.
