My trusty old laptop is beginning to show signs of giving up the ghost, and I need to make sure I can load TMG version 9.05 onto a new laptop.  I have backed everything up to external hard drives, but want to make sure I have a good procedure for loading the program and my data onto a new laptop, and would like to solicit comments on how to do this.  I think it is simple.  Run the file "tmg9setup.exe" then import the backup file.  Am I missing something?

You have the basics for installing the TMG program. See my article Moving Data to New Computer or Version for some tips on moving your data.


See my Tutorials and Articles on using TMG at tmg.reigelridge.com

The Second Edition of my book, A Primer for The Master Genealogist, is still available
. For more information see my website.

Forgive me if this questions has been posed previously, but here goes.  I have TMG 9.05 on both my desktop and laptop.  It's time to replace my laptop, so will I be able to install TMG 9.05 on my new laptop since TMG is licensed to run only on two computers and the new laptop would be #3? 


Thank you for your assistance.
