Upgrade without putting your company file online

If you're upgrading from AccountRight Classic (v19 or earlier), but don't want access to a lot of AccountRight's online services, follow these steps to upgrade your file offline.

To avoid issues while upgrading, make sure you've read the tips on our Things you should know before upgrading page.

Download the latest AccountRight

If you haven't already done so, you'll need to download and install the latest AccountRight before you can upgrade your file.

See Getting the latest version for information on downloading and installing AccountRight.

Things to do before you upgrade

  • If your file is 100MB or more in size, there are a couple of things you should do in your Classic AccountRight software first . This can help the upgrade complete faster and smoother.

  • If you've linked pictures to cards or item records, note that pictures over 200KB in size won't be imported into your upgraded file.

  • Make sure your card and item pictures are saved in a subfolder called Graphics , in the same location as the file you're upgrading. For example, if the file you're upgrading is located at C:\Plus19 , make sure the pictures are in   C:\Plus19\Graphics .

Depending on which features you use in your software, you may need to complete additional upgrade tasks. For detailed information, see Additional upgrade tasks.
