Post subject:  Transferring to new computer

I cannot find a file with my account number as name of file.

I downloaded WMO CM to new computer and still need to get data transferred.

I just did this a week ago and followed the following instructions:

You will find a file with a name that matches the owner #, and the extension of .WMO in the Program Files\WM Owners folder on your computer (example: 12-345678.wmo). Simply copy this file to the other computer using a flash drive (location isn't important) and use the Account/Open menu item to navigate to the folder where you copied the file and open the account after installing the program on the other machine.

I hope that this helps.

I tried to find the program as your example suggests. It is not on my computer.

I guess I need to find another way, or I have to reinput 15 years of information.

First, you don't need to move the program, just the data file.

I would first suggest installing a new copy of the WM Owners Credit Manager on your new computer. Then go to your old computer and open the WM Owners Credit Manager. Once there, select "Open" as if you were going to open a file for another account. There you should see the path where your data is stored. The default is c:\program files\WM Owners. (See 1st attachment.)

If for some reason, that doesn't work, then search for the data file. It will be named whatever you named it and will usually be your owner number. You can see that number on the default screen of the Credit Manager. It will be after the account name and in parentheses. (See 2nd attachment.)

Once you find it, as earlier stated, copy the data file to a jump drive or CD or whatever you are using to transfer data to the new computer and put it in the location where the WM Owners Credit Manager is installed on your new computer.

This time I found the .wmo file when I tried to open and copied it. It said the fi9le was no longer there. I still have the data in the credit manager, but the file is no longer there.

I am normally pretty good at computer stuff, but this throws me.

If the data is on the credit manager, you have a file. If you delete it, there's no data.

Take a look in the recycled bin for the file also.

I was wrong about the name of the file. If you had originally named it 12-12345 and then later changed the owner number to 00001212345, the name of the .wmo file would still be 12-12345.

Just do a search for all *.wmo files and look at the dates they were edited. That should help.

It is not in recycle bin. I tried a search, nothing.
I use OpenOffice so it won't export since I don't have Excel.
I do have data, but no files under .WMO at all.

Thanks again.

Post subject:  Transferring to new computer * HELP!!!

I have completely stressed myself out trying to transfer my programs and files from my computer running Vista to my replacement with Windows 8. I just can not get the information in my Credit Manager to copy to my thumb drive or my external hard drive and then show up on my new computer.

I located the "my owner number.wmo" file but it shows shortcut as TYPE. When I click on it on my old computer it does open up the CM with all of my info in it. When I send it to my flash drive then insert the flash drive on my new computer and open it, it opens up the Credit Manager without my credits and reservations showing.

Help please before I completely lose my mind! I am not all that computer literate I am discovering every day so please use baby steps for me to understand. I am kind of on a crunch as each time I turn on my old laptop, it seems to be its last "breath" if you know what I mean.

Thank you in advance!!

:oops:

Hi, I have not been here for a long time!

I just bought a new laptop with Windows 8. I have been successful many times transferring the data to a new computer but not this time!! I transferred all files including the 11111111.wmo file and it listed only up I til my 2012 entries but not for 2013 or 2014. Yet all the entries show on the laptop that I took the files from. Windows 8 warned me to not download but I did any way. I also did a new download from here and added my .wmo file and still missing entries. Any one have any suggestions? Thanks Peter

Peter, you are way ahead of me. I can't get it to show any of my reservations or credits at all. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the program on the new computer and I uninstalled and resaved on the flash drive the 11111111.wmo file as well but it just opens the program blank on Windows 8 even though it shows my stuff on the old computer.

I am really hoping that someone can help us. Windows 8 computer also did not want me to install but I chose RUN IT ANYWAY.

Diana

Diana, thanks so much for the quick reply. I feel so much better now. The file date on my .wmo file is 2102 and was not sure if that was the install date or date of first use. Not sure if that file changes it's date based on input? But nevertheless the same file works on windows 7 but not on windows 8. Lol I will sleep better tonight! Thanks Peter.

Any one have a solution?

Iam going to hold my files on a thumb drive. I have exported to exel and may just modify excel to do what the program did.
