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.

Note: 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.
