Moving FH to new PC


Neil Grantham
 

Hello all

I am currently having PC issues that have been niggling for a while, so it is time for me to replace it!

My FH project is cloud based, so that I can use it on the PC and my laptop.
Is there anything outside of the project structure I need to consider? Settings perhaps?
I guess there is a KB article I need to look at?

I started with v5 and upgraded to v6. I have the relevant installers/upgrades and my two licenses ready too.

Best Wishes,

Neil

Yes, you guessed correctly. You need to copy customisation settings, and there is a KB article.

 

BTW: You should have been copying such custom settings between your PC and laptop all the while.

 

You can use the Upgrade V5 to V6 installation media together with your two licences to install V6 without needing to install V5.

 

To migrate custom settings use the Backup and Restore Family Historian Settings Plugin and Backup/Restore via the cloud.

 

The KB article Family Historian V5 & V6 Migration Guide provides detailed steps but some don’t apply to you.

https://www.fhug.org.uk/wiki/doku.php?id=how_to:family_historian_migration_guide

 

You can omit step 1) Tools > External File Links checks because your Media already sync between the two PC.

At step 4) you don’t need to copy the …\Family Historian Projects\ folder as it will migrate (eventually) via the cloud.

 

If you have any other questions then just ask.

Many thanks Mike

I've installed the plugin and backed up my settings to external drive ready for the new PC.
Will read the KB carefully to make sure I have all bases covered.

Best Wishes,

Neil
