Move Ajour and Locate Ajour Data File
Steps for Moving an Ajour Installation
- Download the latest version of Ajour, 5.6.4. Then install it on your new computer.
For more information about program installation see the Ajour help page about
how to install.
- On your old computer, make a copy of the folders where you store ajour data files.
Move the files to the new location.
The Help | About information dialog shows all paths used by our software.
Ajour.dat contains most of the setup configuration and all appointments, events, notes etc.
This file is often located in the same directory as the rest of the Ajour package/installation;
However, depending on the configuration during installation, it may be located elsewhere.
You can also open options.ini (located in the same folder as Ajour) and view option "DataAccess";
valid values are "user"
(in most cases: C:\Documents and Settings\%user%\Documents\Micro-Sys\Ajour\)
and "all" (same directory as Ajour).
If you on newer Windows versions install Ajour into
C:\Program Files you can usually not use the app storage mode.
If you do so, Windows VirtualStore will redirect all file access outside standard user
directories to a directory similar to this: %LOCALAPPDATA%\VirtualStore\Program Files\%software%.
The recommended solution is to install Ajour on the new computer.
Then move or copy the Ajour.dat file from the old computer.
You should not associate Ajour to .dat
files and start
Ajour by double-clicking. Ajour will always
open the .dat
located in the designated data path.
