I need to install Vehicle Fleet Manager 4.0 on a new computer and I want to restore my database. How should I proceed?

Single-user configuration

1. First, you need to do a backup copy in a safe place of the database file located on your old computer. The default name of this file is VSOFT.FDB. If you are not sure where this file is located, then here is how you can find it

2. Once it’s done, click here to download and install the latest version of Vehicle Fleet Manager on your new computer.

***For users of 3.0 version!***
Contact us if you want to migrate to 4.0 version. If you want to continue with 3.0 version, then click here to download the latest build.

3. Now that you have Vehicle Fleet Manager installed on your new computer, you have to replace the demo database file with your own database copy you made at step 1. The default folder for the database file is “C:\ProgramData\VinitySoft Data” so just copy/paste your database file to this folder.

4. Finally, you will have to send us your new identification code so we will be able to send you the corresponding activation code. See the following picture for an example of an identification code
