Upgrading from one version of ProPresenter to another version is made simple by the Import from Previous Version ability in ProPresenter, but what if you are trying to upgrade AND move computers at the same time? This adds a few steps for you, but it should be a quick and easy process.
The first thing you want to do is update your data to the new ProPresenter form by installing the latest version of ProPresenter on your current computer. (Don't worry, if you don't have a registration for it, you can run it in the Demo mode.) Install the latest version of ProPresenter from our download page, then open it up and it should propmt you to import your data. If it doesn't promt you, then you can go to File > Import > Import from Previous Version to manually import your data. You should now see your library from the previous version and can import it into the newer version.
Now that you have your data in the new file format, you can migrate all of your information from the originating computer to the new computer. Install the latest version of ProPresenter on the new computer to make sure that the following steps will work correctly. Now follow the steps in this Knowledge Base article to transfer the files from the originating computer to the new computer.
Note that there are some items that don't transfer throughout this process, mainly:
These items may need to be manually installed or inserted into the program.
