How can I make a backup of the Proform Database?

Info:

In this release we have added a new backup and restore option which can be found from the options menu at the top or from the feature buttons down the side.

 

The backup feature looks like this 

The backup creates a full copy of the Proform database and stores it in the folder C:\ProformP\BACKUP\ and the backup file is called PRODB.bak

The restore asks you to choose Proform backup file created using the backup tool above and then will restore that backup over your database replacing all the data so it is important that you are aware of the date of the backup you are restoring.

This tool is an excellent way of keeping your two copies of Proform up-to-date. i.e. Backup on one computer and then copy over the PRODB.bak file to another computer or memory stick and restore it on that computer.

 

How can I unistall a previous version Proform Professional?

Info:

There are a various parts of a previous version which need to be be un-installed BEFORE the software will run correctly; please follow the steps below.

1: Un-install SQL Server
To un-install SQL Server open Control Panel and choose either

Add or Remove Programs in Windows XP/Vista
or
Programs and Features in Windows 7

You should now see a list of all the programs you have installed on your computer

We need to find the SQL Server entry and it will be one of the follow two entries

Microsoft SQL Server Desktop Engine
or
Microsoft SQL Server 2008

It may or may not say (PROFORM_RACING) after the entry name in the list. This is fine just choose the entry which matches closest.
If you are unsure then drop us a email or send a screen-shot or we can perform the un-install for you.

NOTE: There may be more than one entry for Microsoft SQL Server 2008, like Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Browser and Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Native Client, the correct entry to choose first is the one which says Microsoft SQL Server 2008 or Microsoft SQL Server 2008 (PROFORM_RACING)
It may then be prudent to un-install the other SQL Server 2008 items aswell.


Once you have found the correct entry then please select it and un-install it.

The un-install process should give you all the instructions you need but if you are unsure then please get in touch.

Once you have un-installed SQL Server then and only then proceed to step 2
