Bad down load experience

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I finally decided to do my update and started on my new PC with a fresh download of CA Premier X10. when it finished it was noted that none of my templates and bonus cats downloaded. Can some one tell me how to down load these manually? I've already tried the help - download - update way and got nothing.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

Are they on your old system?

 

They don't "download", but would be recognized if you were doing an update on the same system.

 

You will need to manually copy from one system to another, use DropBox or similar, burn a CD ...

 

Might google transfer files to new PC to get some ideas.

Old system is a pile of smoking parts now. I guess I'm starting from scratch. Not the first time.

Typically those are installed fresh but x10 has the ability to migrate them as an option during install. Perhaps that was accidentally left on and since there was nothing to migrate that's what you got? Guessing but I'd uninstall reinstall and make sure it wasn't set to migrate.

Guess, that's my only avenue at this point Mark. Sounds like a tomorrow thing as the clock says it's "Beer O'Clock" here on Vancouver Island. :blink:

If you can connect your old hard drive in new system you could copy files from it. There is hardware you can buy to do it or if its compatible you can put it in one of the drive slots and wire it up.

- A new Fresh install on a New computer will have nothing from the previous System or any of your Personal Files or any Libraries other than the Core Libraries.

 

- Bonus Catalogs have always been a separate Download , the Core libraries can be installed via the Library menu though.

Personally I save any Bonus Libraries I download to a Separate Folder and it is backed up to an external HDD Drive along with the Chief Data Folder, so I don't have to go through the Online Library one Bonus Lib. at a time to download them ever again.

 

If you don't have a Backup "in the Cloud" or on an external drive of the Chief Data Folder in My Documents ( and your plan Files if not kept there) then your only hope is accessing the HDD from the old system as mentioned. If you do have a backup you will also be able to save your User Catalog too from the Library.

 

Food for thought.....

Solid advice Mick.

I realised last night, well duh, I have X9 on my lap top , I'll just down load the information from it. I guess the answer was too obvious....:wacko:
