Upgrade from Previous Versions

If you already possess a previous version of Password Depot, you can upgrade it to the latest version.

  1. First, you will have to order the relevant upgrade for your version. The purchase of upgrades is less expensive than purchasing new full versions.
  2. Having completed your order, you will receive a license key (an unlock code) for the current version.
  3. Now install the current version. If your old version is no longer installed on your PC, you do not need to re-install it. If it is already/still installed, however, you do not need to uninstall it. Yet, we would recommend a deinstallation as this enables a better overview and, in case of deinstallation, installing Password Depot`s current version again.
  4. Open the newly downloaded current version.
  5. Go to Help > Unlock and select Step 2 - Unlock Password Depot.
  6. Follow the wizard's instructions. First, you will need to request a free activation key. In the next step, you can enter the license key (unlock code) you received when ordering a license.
  7. Finally, you can open your database from the old version in the new, activated version: In the main menu, go to Database > Database Manager, click Browse... (bottom) and select the path to your file. By default, your file is to be found at "My documents" (XP) or "Documents" (Vista, Windows 7, 8 and 10). Confirm your choice with Open and authenticate yourself for the file by using your master password and/or key file.  

NOTE: For very old versions, it may be helpful to open your database in the old version first, followed by conversion to XML. Subsequently, create a new, empty database in Password Depot 12 and import your XML file.
