Migrating Data to a New Computer

I just bought a new computer and I want to move NannyPay2 to my new system. How do I do that?

  1. Make a backup of NannyPay2 on your old system and then move your backup files (“nannypay2.esc,” “data.esc,” and “ttl.esc”) to a location on your new system. These files have the same names whether you are using a Mac or Windows.
  2. Download and install the most recent version of NannyPay2 from our web site at www.nannypay.com.
  3. When you run NannyPay2 for the first time on your new system, the Employer Setup Wizard appears. Choose the last option: “Import employer and employee data from a NannyPay2 database” and click the “Next” button.
  4. You will then be presented with an open file dialog. Choose the backup file, “nannypay2.esc” that you moved to the new system in step 1.
  5. Your new installation will then populate with all your payroll data.
