Changing Computers


League Organizer is frequently moved from one computer to another as league officers change and computers are upgraded.
Changing Computers when using League Organizer Version 11
On the original computer:
1. Start League Organizer and make a backup to a flash drive. If you have more than one season, backup each season separately. Those using editions with multiple sports should backup each sport separately. To make a backup, select Files > Backup Files.
League Organizer Version 11 will create a folder on the flash drive (loback11_ followed by the date) and save the data in a zip file within the folder. The file name will be the name of the folder where the data was originally stored. In other words, the default file name for the Little League Edition is LL.zip; for Baseball/Softball it is BB.zip and SB.zip; for Soccer it is SO.zip, etc.
2. If you are using the latest version of League Organizer (v.11), download the latest update by selecting Help > Download Update. Save the update file to your flash drive. This will allow you to install the latest update on the new computer.
On the new computer:
3. Go to the new computer, put the flash drive into the USB port. If you are lucky it will ask you if you want to open the folder and see the files. If not, you will have to start Windows Explorer and locate the flash drive.
To open Windows Explorer in Windows 7, right click on the small globe in the bottom left corner of the screen, then left click on Computer. In Windows XP, right click on the start box in the bottom left corner, then left click on My Computer. 
4. Once Windows Explorer is open, double click on the drive letter of the flash drive, then double click on the update file.
5. Install and run the update. 
6. Enter the serial number and keycode. They are on a label in the CD box or on the back of the upgrade envelope.
7. Restore the data from the backup on your flash drive by selecting Files > Restore Backup.
Click on the small box next to the file name and navigate to the FOLDER containing the backup. It is called loback11_ followed by the date. The folder may contain several zip files, each from a different data folder on the original computer. 
If you are restoring multiple sports you must select each sport, then restore the backup for that sport. Change sports by selecting Files > Sport.
If you are restoring multiple seasons, each season must be created before it is restored. To create a new season:
  • a. Go to Files > Preferences > Prompts tab.
  • b. Enter a menu prompt and a Data Path for each season in the old computer. The data path folder must have the same name as the old one to properly restore.
  • c. Close the Preferences window.
  • d. Select Files > Season and select the next season to restore.
  • e. Restore the backup for that season the same way as before (point to the folder on the flash drive).
Changing Computers when using League Organizer Version 10 and Earlier
1. Start League Organizer and make a backup to a flash drive. If you have more than one season, backup each season separately. Those using editions with multiple sports should backup each sport separately. To make a backup, select Files > Backup Files.
Previous versions of League Organizer will create files such as LLback10.lzh, BBback10.lzh, SBback10.lzh, SOback10.lzh, etc. If you have more that one season, you will have to save the backups in different folders because they are all given the same name within the sport.
2. If you have saved an update file, copy it to your flash drive. Otherwise you will have to install from the original CD.
3. Go to the new computer and install the CD. 
If you have an updated program file, put the flash drive into the USB port. If you are lucky it will ask you if you want to see the files. If not, you will have to start Windows Explorer and locate the flash drive.
To open Windows Explorer in Windows 7, click on the small globe in the bottom left corner of the screen, then click on Computer. In Windows XP, click on the start box in the bottom left corner, then click on My Computer
4. Once Windows Explorer is open, double click on the drive letter of the flash drive, then double click on the update file.
5. Install and run the update. 
6. Enter the serial number and keycode. They are on a label in the CD box or on the back of the upgrade envelope.
7. Restore the data from the backup on your flash drive by selecting Files > Restore Backup.
Click on the small box next to the file name and navigate to the drive letter of the flash drive.

If you are restoring multiple sports you must select each sport, then restore the backup for that sport. Change sports by selecting Files > Sport.
If you are restoring multiple seasons, each season must be created before it is restored. To create a new season:
  • a. Go to Files > Preferences > Prompts tab.
    • b. Enter a menu prompt and a Data Path for each season in the old computer. The data path folder must have the same name as the old one to properly restore.
    • c. Close the Preferences window.
    • d. Select Files > Season and select the next season to restore.
    • e. Restore the backup for that season the same way as before (point to the appropriate folder on the flash drive).
    Moving Previous Versions of League Organizer from Windows XP to Windows 7
    If you are using League Organizer Version 10 or previous and transferring the program to a Windows 7 computer, Restore will not work. 
    You can drag the data files from the original computer to a flash drive, install League Organizer on the new computer, then drag the data files into the new computer. The folders are named League10, League9, etc. and the data folder is within this folder, named LL, BB, SB, SO, etc. 
    These old versions will not let you backup on a Windows 7 computer. We highly recommend that you consider upgrading your software to Version 11. Besides having many new and useful features, League Organizer Version 11 will let you backup and restore on all versions of Windows.
