Migrating sage V 7.0 and office 1997....documents etc
Posted on 2004-10-26
I have a client with 2 * win 95 pc's and they were originally going to change both for xp pc's but later decided they only really use one pc.
They currently use old pentiums with windows 95, office 97 and "sage line 50 V 7.0"
From memory will sage allow me to backup to a file, load it on a new pc and load the data file to that pc?
I have read that office 97 is compatible with windows XP home/pro and im sure I have done this myself, but I have also read about a number of problems people have suffered. Some say that MS outlook will not work properly.
How do I transfer the documents? the old HDD's are 2GB's, will they just attach as slave and allow me to transfer smoothly?
if any of the above are going to cause problems it's better for them to spend now rather than later.
I am also going to network the new xp pc to the second win 95 pc I assume that is ok, thought it was worth meantioning but I have posted it as a separate question.
