Transfer ZionWorx 2014 to a New PC

There may come a time when you need to transfer your existing installation of ZionWorx 2014 onto a different PC. For example this might be necessary if you've upgraded to a new PC. Fortunately this is a simple process with a few straightforward steps.

Note: You will need a USB stick with sufficient free space to help with moving files between the two PCs.

 

On your original PC...

1.  Start ZionWorx and take a backup of your song database and settings, then copy the resulting file to your USB stick:

    File->Export->ZionWorx Backup

2.  Using Windows Explorer, copy the entire 'Themes' folder to your USB stick. The location of this folder is user-definable (so you may need to check 'File->Options->Themes' to be sure) but the default location is here:

    C:\ProgramData\Jubilate Software\ZionWorx\Themes\

Note: The 'ProgramData' folder might be hidden from view in Explorer depending on your Windows settings. However, you can still access it by copying the above folder path to the clipboard (Ctrl+C) and then pasting it into the Explorer 'address bar' (Ctrl+V) then hit Enter.

3. Using Windows Explorer, copy any media folders you need containing images, videos or PowerPoint files to your USB stick. Make a note of the locations of these folders so you can recreate those locations later on the new PC. 

 

On your new PC...

1.  Install ZionWorx 2014 by downloading and running the latest full installer from the following direct link:

http://download.zionworx.com/zionworx/ZionWorxSetup.exe

2.  Insert your USB stick.

3.  Using Windows Explorer, copy across the media folders from the USB stick. If you can keep exactly the same locations for these as you had on the original PC then you will save yourself additional work setting those folders up again in ZionWorx.

4.  Using Windows Explorer, copy across the contents of the Themes folder from the USB stick into the default Themes folder location:

    C:\ProgramData\Jubilate Software\ZionWorx\Themes\

Note: The 'ProgramData' folder might be hidden from view in Explorer depending on your Windows settings. However, you can still access it by copying the above folder path to the clipboard (Ctrl+C) and then pasting it into the Explorer 'address bar' (Ctrl+V) then hit Enter.

5.  Start ZionWorx and restore the database and settings from the backup file that you previously saved to the USB stick: 

    File->Import->ZionWorx Restore

Note: You will be asked whether you want to restore 'old settings' from the backup. Click 'Yes' if you want the new PC to have the same application settings as your original PC.

6.  Check that your songs and themes are successfully transferred then close ZionWorx.

7.  If you no longer need to use ZionWorx on the original PC then you should uninstall it to free up an installation count under the terms of your Team Licence.

8.  Pat yourself on the back!
