Setting Up TQSL on a New Computer
If you've acquired a new computer and would like to use it to run TQSL,
|Install TQSL on your new computer, as described here
|On your old computer, direct TQSL to create a Backup File.
|Copy the Backup File from the old computer to the new computer, e.g. using a thumb drive or a network connection
|On the new computer, direct TQSL to restore Callsign Certificates and their associated private keys, Station Locations, and Preferences from the copied Backup File.
- If your old computer is not running a recent version of TQSL with the ability to create a backup file, upgrade it; otherwise, you'll have to move your Callsign Certificates and Station Locations one at a time.
- Creating a backup file works even when your old and new computers are running different operating systems.
- If you'll be continuing to submit QSOs from your old computer as well as your new computer, see the procedure recommended here.
