We will no longer support new installations that use the full Microsoft SQL Server (Express or other editions). The current HORTICOPIA® Professional Version V utilizes the Microsoft SQL Local database implementation which greatly simplifies both installation and configuration of the HORTICOPIA® Professional Version V software.
If you have added any of the following data to HORTICOPIA® Professional on your old computer:
and wish to use that data on the new computer, you will need to transfer the Horticopia Data folder.
If you do not have any of the data described above that needs to be transferred, keep it simple by not attempting to transfer the Horticopia Data folder.
You must delete the existing Horticopia Data folder. If you have installed, but not run the program on the new computer, the Horticopia Data folder will not have been created.
Normally, you can:
Open the Horticopia Control Panel (Start, All Programs, Horticopia Pro V, Horticopia Control Panel).
Click on the Setup tab
Click on Delete the Horticopia Data folder
Let the software delete the Horticopia Data folder.
If this doesn't work, search the system disk (C:) for Horticopia Data. Be sure to include hidden folders and files in the search. The Horticopia Data folder is typically in the Program Data folder or in the Public Documents folder. Once you locate it, delete it. (Be sure it's not your copy of the Horticopia Data folder from your old computer.)
Occasionally you won't be able to delete the Horticopia Data folder because the SQL Server has not released the database. The simplest way to resolve this, is to open the Windows Task Manager, select the Services tab, locate the SQL Server, and then right-click on it and select Stop Service
1. On Computer NEW:
2. Click on the Setup tab, then click on Import HORTICOPIA Data from a different location.
3. Locate the Horticopia Data folder from Computer OLD and let the data import complete. All of your data will be successfully transferred and usable on computer NEW.
It's a good idea to periodically back up your Horticopia Data. This is easily accomplished using the Setup tab in the Horticopia Control Panel.
Your HORTICOPIA® Professional documents, such as lists and layouts, are simply Windows files and can be located anywhere on your system. They are stored by default in the folder My Documents\Horticopia\Local Documents, but you may store them elsewhere. The Horticopia Data folder backup does not back up these files.
