Bringing Construct with me to a new computer

Open Construct and go to File > Database > Backup.

Backup in Construct

Name and save the Construct Backup file (.vcb) somewhere you will be able to access it from the new computer. This file will contain all your job and data connection information.

Go to Help > License & Register.

Copy the serial number (you may want to paste this somewhere safe for the time being, like on your computer’s Notepad or Sticky Notes; you’ll enter this same number in Construct on the new machine).

Click the Uninstall License tab.

Uninstall License

When prompted, click Unlock Your License. This will let you remove your license from the current machine so you can apply it to the new machine – once done, this copy of Construct will be disabled on the old machine.

Install Construct on your new computer.

Open Construct and go to File > Database > Restore.

Restoring a backup in Construct

Select the Construct Backup file that you created in the first step containing all your job and data connection information. 

Once you restore the backup, you should be all set to resume working in Construct on your new machine. If you come across any issues, feel free to contact Rapid Insight support for help.
