How do I transfer the program and my database(s) to a new computer?

First, download Password Depot and install it on your new computer. Make sure to install the correct main version of the program.

You can find the latest version here:

All previous versions can be found here:

To unlock the software to the full version on your new computer, you need the unlock code which was sent to you by email when purchasing the license. 

To transfer your existing databases to your new computer, copy them (e.g. using a USB drive) to your new system. Password Depot databases use the file format .pswe, .pswd, .psw or .psw7 etc. and are stored by default to the directory "\Documents\Password Depot\".

If you have defined individual settings in the program options and would like to transfer those as well instead of resetting them, please note the following:

All settings are stored to the file pwdepot.cfg. You can find it in Windows Vista, 7, 8, or higher in the directory

C:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\Roaming\AceBIT\Password Depot <VERSION>

and in Windows XP in the directory

C:\Documents and settings\Application data\AceBIT\Password Depot <VERSION>

Please also copy the pwdepot.cfg file to the appropriate directory on your new computer.
