How do I move my LAS software from one computer to another?

If you want to move the LAS database from one computer to another, follow these steps:
 

  1. Upgrade the LAS on the old computer to the latest version from the WM Software website
  2. After upgrading, uninstall the LAS from the old computer (there cannot be two LAS servers running simultaneously on the network).
  3. Install the LAS software on the new computer (it needs to be available 24/7; WM Software software products check in randomly to verify their activation).
  4. On the new computer:
    1. Exit out of the LAS console
    2. Run services.msc
    3. Stop the service “WMS License Administration Server WD” (you must stop this service first!)
    4. Stop the service “WMS License Administration Server”
  5. On the old computer, copy all of the files from "C:\ProgramData\WM Software\License Administration Server" to the same location on the new computer.
  6. On the new computer:
    1. Start the service “WMS License Administration Server”
    2. Start the service “WMS License Administration Server WD"
    3. Start the LAS console
  7. On the old computer, uninstall the LAS software
  8. On the old computer, remove the folder “C:\ProgramData\WM Software\License Administration Server”
