Moving Club Accounting from one computer to another.

When getting ready to move from one computer to another, there are three main things required to get started:

-The proper serial number
-A recent backup
-A copy of the club accounting program

 

THE PROPER SERIAL NUMBER

The best way to make sure that you have the correct serial number is to open your copy of the Club Accounting program, and write down the serial number which appears on the page with the club name and maintenance date.
If for any reason the program is not operating correctly, the serial number can also be found on the back of the plastic case the program originally came in, or can be looked up by one of our support staff. You can contact support by filling in a support request at:

A RECENT BACKUP

NOTE: These steps assume Club accounting is working correctly; if not, please contact support for help in getting your information

In Club Accounting, go to the File menu, and choose EXPORT.
On the Export window, click BROWSE
On the Browse For Folder window, we suggest to select DESKTOP.
NOTE: If you have a removable drive plugged into the computer, you can certainly select Computer, and then the removable drive.
Once you have the location selected, Click OK to Return to the Export Data window.
Click OK to Export the data, and OK again to return to the Club Accounting program. When this is complete, you can close Club Accounting
NOTE: Every backup file contains all of your club information, so you do not need to save multiple copies.

Once you have the backup file, you will need to get it to the new computer. The files are small enough that they can be sent through email, or saved on to any number of disks.
If you are not sure how to do this, please check the built in help files for windows, or your email program.

 

A COPY OF CLUB ACCOUNTING

NOTE: Club Accounting requires an internet connection at least during registration; make sure one is available.

We suggest whenever possible to download and install the most recent version from our web site at:
https://www.iclub.com/support/CA3support.asp

Steps for this are as follows:

  1. In your web browser, go to https://www.iclub.com/support/CA3support.asp
  2. Click on DOWNLOAD FREE DEMO, in the right-hand column.
  3. Fill in the information on the next page, and then click the DOWNLOAD button.
  4. Select the option to save the file

NOTE: Depending on the security settings in your copy of Windows, there may be an alert when you try to download or install club accounting. The alert will encourage you to delete the program, since we're not generally recognized by Windows. If you run into this, take the following steps:

  1. If you see buttons for Delete, Actions, and View Downloads, then first click 'Actions'.
  2. Click the More Info or More Options link on the screen, and then click the Run anyway button that will appear.
  3. Select DESKTOP for the save directory (you may need to click SAVE again to confirm the Desktop after selecting it.)
  4. When the download is complete, close your web browser and double-click on the installation file on your desktop.
  5. Follow the on-screen installation instructions.

 

NOTE: If for any reason you need to install from a CD, make sure that the disc is no older than 01/01/2010; discs made before this date can be installed on newer computers, but due to changes in Windows, Club Accounting may not launch if installed with an earlier CD.

 

After installing, make sure to take these steps before you open Club Accounting and try to register.

 

Once you have Club Accounting installed, and set for your copy of Windows, open the program.
The first thing will be to enter the club name. While it is possible to change the name latter, the process can be tricky; double check your typing before clicking OK.
When asked for the serial number, go ahead and enter either the serial number for the outgoing treasurer, or the 2nd license serial number if the club is adding a second treasurer.
From here, follow the steps to import the backup file made earlier.

NOTE: If after registering, Club Accounting does not show the correct maintenance, contact ICLUB support to correct the issue.
