do you have a backup, if so reinstall sage on the new pc and make the first comapny accept the default settings then put the backup on the same pc, then login to the first comapy and under file the command select restore and point it at the backup and follow the on screen commands

i think i had best add to this.

the back office have not been running the sage back up, but i do have the file structure backed up.
which files do i need to reimport to get it to work.

long story but i need to know exactly which one change just to reimport them, i have a continuse data protection system which has itself in a mess.

install sage on the new PC first and setup the first company post back once you have done that

Copy the contents of the ACCDATA directory on your old pc into the one on the new pc is all that you need to do.

You need to install first (as Tim says), then Run the program first to the point where a company is setup (just put gibberish in as you will overwrite it).  You need to type in the Serial No. and Activation Key at some point during this procedure.  Having done this, then copy ACCDATA across.
