***These instructions apply to computers that do not store the data file on a network server. If your data is on a network server simply install TATEMS on the new computer and then use the networking tool in TATEMS to re-link to your data file on the server.
To move TATEMS to a new computer follow these steps:
1. Download the full installation of the latest version of TATEMS for your new computer here:
Please be sure you are current on support and version updates or eligible to run the latest version.
2. Copy the data file (tatems2005be.mdb) over from the old computer to the new computer. This file should be located in:
C:\Program Files\TATEMS 2005\
by default and should be placed in the same directory TATEMS is installed in on the new computer.
3. After installation you will need a new registration number, we will need the following 3 things in order to generate a new number for you:
a. Computer name
b. Serial number
c. Version number
You can find these 3 things on the registration screen that appears when you first start TATEMS on the new computer.
You may have to enter the registration number in twice; once after first installing and again after moving your tatems2005be.mdb file over.
