    How-to update your current version of LimagitoX File Mover

    Dear users,

    Important: Install on Windows 7 or higher. Always keep a copy of the previous and new installer.

    A how-to update to the latest version of Limagito File Mover (v2017 and up):

    1. Do NOT uninstall the previous version (otherwise you will lose the ‘Logon As User’ of the LimagitoX Services).

    2. Stop all ‘in use’ LimagitoX Services
    >> LimagitoXS, File Mover Engine as Service (If you are using our File Mover as Service)
    >> LimagitoXW, File Mover Web Remote Tool as Service

    3. Stop all ‘in use’ LimagitoX Applications
    >> LimagitoXR, File Mover Remote Tool
    >> LimagitoXC, File Mover Config Tool
    >> LimagitoXA, File Mover Engine as Application (If you are using our File Mover as Application)

    4. Run the latest installer

    5. Start the Services you were using again

    6. Start the Applications you were using again


    Please let us know if the info above isn’t clear or sufficient.

    How do I migrate LimagitoX to another system

    Procedure to migrate your current ‘old’ installation to a ‘new’ system:

    1) On the ‘old’ system:

    • Create a backup of the Settings Directory:
      • Open the ‘Settings Directory’ of the current File Mover installation. Menu Item: Tools > Settings Dir
      • Create a backup of all files (including subdirectories) within this directory (default C:\ProgramData\LimagitoX\*.*)
      • The most important file is LimagitoX.sqlite (contains all settings)

    2) On the ‘new’ system:

    • Install the latest version (v2018 or higher)
    • Start the LimagitoX File Mover Config tool (do not start any other file mover exe yet)
      • Open the ‘Settings Directory’ using the ‘Tools > Settings Directory’ menu item of this Config tool
      • Close Config tool (important !)
      • Copy the complete backup content from the ‘old’ server into this directory (default C:\ProgramData\LimagitoX\)
      • It will ask you to overwrite some files on the new server which is ok to do. All files from the backup (= ‘old’ server) must be copied to the new server.

    3) Open the Intro.pdf file on the new server and start with the ‘First Usage’ section of this document (you can skip the first item of the First Usage section which is ‘Install the latest version’).
