  • Go to the machine that currently has the PNP Master running on it and go into the PinkNotes® Plus About window and write down your registration information.
  • Run the installation for the PinkNotes® Master on the NEW computer that you want to put the PinkNotes® Master on.
  • At the end of the installation if you are asked to reboot the computer do so.
  • Once the install is done shut down the NEW PNP Master.
  • Shut down the OLD PinkNotes® Master.
  • Then copy any *.MDB files from the computer that you currently have the PNP Master on to the NEW PinkNotes® Master. The *.MDB files are normally located in the folder "c:\Program Files\PNP4\Master\".
  • Also, copy all of the individual folders for each username inside of the Master folder from the OLD machine to the NEW machine.
  • Startup the NEW PinkNotes® Master.
  • Once the NEW PinkNotes® Master is started you will need to go to each client and change the master address to point to the new PinkNotes® Master if the ip address is not the same.
  • To register your new instllation, go to any PinkNotes® Client and click the right-mouse button on the PinkNotes® icon and select "Register PinkNotes® Plus..." and enter the same reg info you were using on your old PinkNotes® Master. This only needs to be done on one client.
  • It is highly recommended that you uninstall PinkNotes® from the OLD master machine once you are sure the NEW master machine is working properly.
