Moving Virtual TimeClock Network Client

This article will help you quickly move the Virtual TimeClock Pro Client or User Client software to a new computer.

1. 
Determine what version of Virtual TimeClock Network Edition is installed 
On the Virtual TimeClock Server, or any Client, you can check your network version by selecting About Virtual TimeClock. This is under the Help menu on Windows and the Virtual TimeClock menu on Mac. You will need to install the same version of client on the new computer.

2. Ensure your version is compatible with your new computer
Verify that your current version is compatible with the operating system of your new computer using our system requirements. If your version of Virtual TimeClock Network is not compatible then you will need to use a different computer or upgrade your entire TimeClock network. Please refer to our upgrade overview

3. Remove the program from your old computer
a. Quit Virtual TimeClock.
b. Uninstall Virtual TimeClock
Microsoft Windows: 
Right click the Start menu and click Control Panel. Go to Programs and Features. Virtual TimeClock → Virtual TimeClock Client → Uninstall → Uninstall Virtual TimeClock Client.

 

Apple macOS:
Drag the Virtual TimeClock Pro Client or User Client application from your Applications folder to the Trash. Empty the Trash.

4. Remove the client registration in the Virtual TimeClock Server Manager
Open the Virtual TimeClock Server Manager and click Licenses. Select the name of the old client and click Remove Client. Note: Removing the registered client will not affect user data.

5. Install the program on the new computer

a. Determine if you want to download a Pro Client or User Client onto the new computer. Pro Clients allow for access to the TimeClock and Administrative features. User Clients allow for TimeClock access only.

b. Go to the Virtual TimeClock Network download page.

c. Select the installer for your licensed version of Virtual TimeClock Client.
