Installing to a new computer

Postby riicko » Thu Aug 25, 2016 3:50 am

Hello to everybody,

Please advice - old computer is dead and now I need install PT4 to my new computer.

Will be OK, when I install the PT4 and sign up with? Or I have to somehow activate the purchased license?


Thank you all

You can use your registration code on up to two computers that you own and operate and dead computers do not count against you. You should be fine to use your old code.

Well, but I am afraid that I do not have a registration code.

I do not know whether it will be possible backup hard drive.

Any advice?

Thx

Pls, I have one more question - stored (created by me) HUD can not be recovered, right?

They're saved locally - if the machine can't be run at all and you can't get data from its hard drive then there's nothing we can do.

Good, I will try to get data from hard drive and if I succeed, I find saved data in PT4 folder, right? And then just copy to new folder, OK?

The name of folder where I find the HUD is, pls? :-)

Your Hud and other configuration data is saved within:

%LOCALAPPDATA%\PokerTracker 4\

This will be something like "C:\Users\YourName\AppData\Local\PokerTracker 4".
Within that the Huds are saved in Data\layouts.PT4, and and if you have any custom stats they are in Data\StatDefinitionsCustomized.pt4.

For future reference you may want to make regular Backups and keep them somewhere safe away from your main computer, just as you would for any other important documents.
