I just bought a new computer with Windows 10. Is there any way to transfer the TMG program from my old Vista Laptop to the new one?

You can't transfer the program from one computer to another. You need to install the program using the correct installer, then transfer your data. See the article Moving Data to New Computer or Version on my website for details.

Terry,

 

Thanks for your help. Your suggestion is good - I'll ask my grandson for help.

Terry,

 

Using your suggestions, and looking at Jim Byram's post "Re-installing TMG8", I used his TMG8 down loader and got TMG8 on the new computer. I then backed up the file on the old computer and restored on the new one. I'm now back in service. Thanks to you and this forum.
