Moving JDM Premier to a New Computer

Install JDM Premier on a new computer using the JDMPremier Setup file.  Follow the installation instructions for Windows or Mac OSX in Getting Started.

Create and Restore a Backup Folder

The easiest way to move the data to another computer is to create a backup folder and transfer the folder to the other machine:

– Back up your data on the first computer using the Back Up and Restore Data form under Preferences.
– Send the backup folder to the 2nd computer
– Restore the backup

See Backing Up and Restoring Data in the User Guide for more information on how to Backup and Restore data.

 

Transfer the JDMPremier.fmpur File

Another method you can use is to copy the data file:  JDMPremier.fmpur from one machine to another.  Computers may be on different operating systems – Mac or PC.  If you use this method please be sure that both computers are on the same Version/Date of JDM Premier.  The Version/Date is listed on the About form under Preferences in the program.

 

You can copy the JDMPremier.fmpur file to a memory stick, email it to yourself, or upload it to an online storage account such as Dropbox or GoogleDrive.  Replace the file in the JDM Premier folder on the new computer with the file from the other computer that contains all your data.
