Transfer to a new computer

Post by Yousry » Sat Sep 14, 2019 7:38 pm

Hi, I need help.
I bought a new computer and I want to transfer my Blueiris to the new one and cancel it from the old.
May I get advice. Thank you

Do you care about transferring all of the settins and configs or do you prefer to start from scratch?

You can just deactivate the license on the old one and reinstall the license key on the new one if you want to start from scratch.

Or you could export the settings and import them on the new machine.

Good summary, although if you are really lazy, make sure the disks in the new computer have the same disk letters and folders already exist for BI paths.
