Some customers have asked how to make a backup copy of SignGo.

There are several issues to consider:
  • Backing up the program
  • Backing up your work
  • Backing up your default settings
  • Backing up your personal license register

Backing up the program
This is not really necessary as the SignGo and SignGo Lite programs are available for download at any time from our web site. However, if you would still like a copy for your own peace of mind you simply need to make a copy of the downloaded file on your backup media. You can then use it to reinstall at any time.

Backing up your work
As with any other application, it is very important that you make regular backups of the work you do. This will help protect you against computer failure and theft, allowing you to restore your valuable data.

When you save your work in SignGo it is saved to a file ending with the extension wtp. By default, it is saved into a folder called Jobs that is located in the program folder.

Example
C:\Program Files\SignGo\SignGo\jobs


However, you can choose any location to save your work, but it's a good idea to stick to just one.

To back up your work simply copy all files with the *.wtp extension to your backup media.

Backing up your default settings
The program settings such as the units you prefer to use, default sheet size, custom tracing templates etc. are stored in a file located in the Windows folder. The name of the file is SignGo.ini or SignGoLite.ini. To back up your program default settings simply copy the SignGo.ini or SignGoLite.ini to your backup media.

Note: The name of the Windows folder can vary according to the version, and whether a different name was selected during installation. Some common names are: Windows, WINNT, Win95, Win98.


Backing up your personal license register
This not really necessary as your personal license register can be retrieved at any time by logging into your account at http://www.osolis.com/en/registration/. However, if you would still like a copy for your own peace of mind you should copy the personal license register file Licenses.rv1 to your backup media.

Note: The name of the Windows folder can vary according to the version, and whether a different name was selected during installation. Some common names are: Windows, WINNT, Win95, Win98.

As of version 1.11 the default save has changed!
This is due to XP/Vista and the limited user settings, Programs can not normally write to the program files folder so the jobs directoy of signgo is no more.

Please Select a suitable directory (My Documents possibly ) and save to a folder there.


Backing up your default settings in XP
The program settings such as the units you prefer to use, default sheet size, custom tracing templates etc. are stored in a file located in
<drive>\Documents and Settings\<user>\Application Data\SignGo(lite)
the files are Application.ini, Plot.ini and Devices.ini

For Vista the base is programs I believe but as I don't have vista Grin I'll wait for kevin to supply the info
