Frequently Asked Questions

I want to migrate Logmeister to another machine with all the settings preserved. Can I do that?

Yes
If you wish to move your LogMeister/EventMeister installation to another computer you can simply take a backup of your existing data files folder and overwrite the corresponding directory on the target machine. This will only transfer feed and notification settings and data. You will need to manually re-enter preference options such as startup options, etc.

  • In the front end app, use File -> Explore Data Folder to open a view on the main data folder.
  • Quit your existing LogMeister/EventMeister installation and stop the LogMeister/EventMeister service so that it doesn't change any data during transfer
  • Take a backup of the entire data folder (keep a copy of this just in case!).
  • Install LogMeister/EventMeister on the new machine, run the front end app and use File -> Explore Data Folder to open a view on the main data folder.
  • Quit the LogMeister/EventMeister front end app and stop the service on your new machine. It is critical that you do not miss this step!
  • Copy your backup contents into the folder on the new machine.
  • Restart the service and run the front end app, in that order.
