I am using BW 8 and migrating to a new PC. Is there anyway to install BW 8 on the new machine other than using the disks and then updating everything online?

Thanks

I tried simply copying the files over to my newer computer without avail as the installation still needs to take place initially. However, I think that if you copy your updated databases folder over after installation on the new computer, the new updates will be recognized. But, then again if the updates are to the main program itself, the updates will have to come over the internet or through other media such as the DVD's. I know that I gave up on trying to copy over and just re-installed the program from my DVD's.

Thanks for the reply. That is what I suspected, but it was worth seeing if there is a way to expedite things a bit.

Merry Christmas!
