New version of Live.exe tool

A new version of live.exe is available here. The new version makes it very easy to migrate your software from one computer to another.

Copy live.exe to your program directory (like c:\my_software\code\) and start it. Click on the button ‘Generate backup folder’ – the program lets you select a destination in your network and then backups the complete program folder and your application data, including your passport file. You should execute this backup function from time to time to save your software package. The destination folder should not be on the same drive as your original installation.

In order to install the software on a new computer you must make the backup folder accessible for the new machine. Then start live.exe in the backup folder and click on ‘Install software on this computer’. This action will do the installation for you and your software should now run on the new PC.

Note the following exceptions:

  • If your software is protected by a USB dongle you must install the dongle driver on the new machine first. The dongle driver is available here.
  • If your software is protected by activation you need to obtain a new passport file from us.
