Let me start by saying I really LOVE the flexibility of this inventory software. I have been using it since 2013, fixed a few bugs and learned how to use the program! It has been an enjoyable experience.

Now I have switched computers and managed to transfer the software package but I cannot seem to find how to retrieve the old data of inventory for my company to the new computer. Can someone tell me how to do this without having to input all the inventory items again. Thank you.

Thank you for your kind feedback! In a stand alone environment, your data is located in [C:\AlmytaSystems]\#Company Name#\ACSD312.DATA. All you need is this file. There is no data related to you in any other place. There are also two subfolders Reports and Screens. Those contain some configuration of yours. 

1. Install ACS on a new PC.

2. Copy  [C:\AlmytaSystems]\#Company Name# folder from old  to new PC.

Ok- I copied the #Business Name# file onto my new computer. However, I cannot open it now. I get a message that states "You are not authorized to log into this application. Please contact the application administrator." I removed any passwords before copying the folder. How do I access the file? I can get into the company X, Y, Z with no problems but not my custom business file. Any suggestions?

In the Company Selector, try to click Configure button, scroll down untick the I will be using secure logins. See if this deactivates security.

We did both the company directory copy and then the application directory in the root of c: The first time with the download of 64bit application and the company file the application works but thecompany doen't show up in the company list. The second attempt with copying the application from the old PC - the application says that it needs the 32 bit office that the install was originally from. The following is the issues that I think are causing my problem. 

Old PC / New PC - I would think this would be most new upgrades are currently.
1. 32 bit to 64 bit 
2. Office 2016 to Office 365 - both installed local 

Any help would be great
