Cannot restore backup to new PC

Postby Vaccano » Sun Feb 11, 2018 1:57 pm

We got a new pc. It is setup and ready for me to restore my previous PC's . I made a backup of my current pc's MLS and copied it over to the new PC.

I opened MLS and set it up (Admin user and such) on the new PC.

I then tried to restore the MLS backup I had taken on the old PC and I got this message:

> The version of this backup is newer than the current version of MLS.

My old PC has MLS: 3.8.6 and the new one has 3.8.5.

But I can't see a way to upgrade my new PC's MLS version.

How can I copy over all my MLS Data?

Download the current version from the Help Center and install over-top of the current version.

MLS Download

Note that after doing that, the computer will not be useable until you call support and do a security reset. As such, I would suggest that you not do that until you are done with MLS for the day. You won't be able to reset until Monday, working hours, Utah time.
