(1) The online approach, set up an upload code in your customer login account. (Recommended)
 

 

  • Go to http://www.floorcoveringsoft.com/support/Login.shtml
  • Log in using your email and password
  • Go to Online Services tab, set up an upload code and download code pair, so you may upload existing datbase to the server, from Tools/Upload Material database, system setting command), you may set up different codes for a number of databases, also other users (from any PC) use download code to download any database to their program.

(2) Back up the original database file to a new computer. (Recommended)

  • To move product database (for Window XP): copy the system database file named fepMaterial.mdb (it is normally under C:\Documents and Settings\your account\Application Data\FEP), to the new computer, and put it under the same directory.
  • To move product database (for Windows Vista): copy the system database file named fepMaterial.mdb (it is normally under C:\Users\your account\AppData\Roaming\FEP), to the new computer, and put it under the same directory. You may need to enter AppData\Roaming\FEP path name as it may be invisible at normal mode.
  • for Windows 7 and 8 OS, the database fepMaterial7.mdb under C:\Users\your account\AppData\Roaming\FEP
(3) Back up database as an xml file
  • To physically backup your database as a file, go to Product tab -> Database -> Database Management Menu->"Backup as XML file" (then use Restore XML file" to restore
