Backup/Restore of .mdb/.ini Files

Postby rvdor » 20 May 2012, 12:11

great program but i had trouble trying to move form one computer to another, the backup instructions on the web page should probably be changed as the .mdb and .ini files from a install to the default paths didnt end up where the backup instructions say they should be

I found the .mdb and .ini files here

Windows Vista
C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files\Metalogic\Finance Explorer

Windows 7 Home Premium
C:\Users\yourusername\AppData\Local\VirtualStore\Program Files (x86)\Metalogic\Finance Explorer

copied .mdb and .ini files from these folders and all is good

Hi rvdor,
Glad to hear you are enjoying Finance Explorer.

Thank you for the feedback regarding the location of the data files. While the files are installed to "C:\Program Files\" as mentioned on the help page, as you correctly noticed, Windows Vista and Windows 7 will automatically move them to a different location.

I will update the help page to clarify about Vista and 7.

All the best,
Enjoy our software? Then please submit a review.
