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 according upgrade for your version. The purchase of upgrades is less expensive than the purchasing of new versions.
  2. Having completed your order, you will receive an unlock code for the current version.
  3. Now install the current version. If you old version is not (anymore) installed on your PC, you do not need to re-install it. If it is already installed, however, you do not need to uninstall it. Yet we would recommend a deinstallation as this enables a better overview.
  4. Open the newly downloaded current version.
  5. Go to  Help -> Unlock and select Step 2 - Unlock to full version.
  6. Follow the wizard's instructions. First you will need to request a free activation key. In the next step you can enter the unlock code you received when you ordered a license.
  7. Finally, you can open your database from the old version in the new version: Go to the main menu and click Open and then Browse and select the path to your file. By default, your file is to be found at "My documents" (XP) viz. "Documents" (Vista, Windows 7, 8 and 10). Confirm your choice with OK and authenticate for the file by using your master password and/or key file.  

NOTE: For very old versions (versions 1 and 2) you will first need to install the trial version of a later version (version 3 or 4). Within this later version, please open and save your file. Subsequently, you can take over your file into the current version.
