How do you transfer Simsol to a new computer?

I got a new laptop and I want to transfer all of my work over to it. How do I do this?


Best Answer

Transferring Simsol is easy, but it may take a little time to do so depending on the amount of claims you have inside of your program. To get started, you'll want to have an external hard-drive or USB stick handy.


  1. Shut Simsol down and plug in an external drive (i.e. USB drive) to your old computer 
  2. Navigate to your computer's C drive and locate the Simsol folder 
  3. Right-click on the Simsol folder and select 'Copy' 
  4. Open your USB drive and right click to select 'Paste'. Let this process completely copy over 
  5. Once the Simsol folder is on the USB drive unplug the stick and plug it into the new computer 
  6. Copy and paste the Simsol folder from the USB drive to the C drive of your new computer 
  7. Once the folder is on the C drive, unplug the USB drive from the computer 
  8. You'll then save and run these two downloads in this order: 1.  BDE install  2. Simsol Update
  9. Once the installs have completed, you'll find the Simsol icon on your desktop. Click to open. 
  10. Finally, you'll just need to transfer over your license. To do so, contact our registration team at 1(800)447-4676 x2.
