Moving to a New Computer
To continue working with Citavi and your Citavi projects on a new computer, follow these steps:
Save Your Data From the Old Computer
As a default, all of your personal Citavi files, including your projects and any citation styles you may have created, are stored in the Documents\Citavi 5 folder. Copy this entire folder with all of its subfolders to an external drive (e.g. a USB flash drive or a network share). If you don't remember where you saved your user files, click Tools > Options > Folders > User files.
As a user of Citavi for Windows, you received an email message from us containing your license key. Have this email message ready. A good way to do this is to save the message as a text file on the same drive as your other Citavi files.
Uninstall Citavi on the Old Computer
Install Citavi on the New Computer
- Download the latest version from our website: http://www.citavi.com/download.
- Double-click the Citavi5Setup.exe file and complete the installation.
- Copy the Citavi 5 folder you saved to the new computer. Overwrite the Citavi 5 folder on the new computer with the Citavi 5 folder from your old computer.
- Start Citavi and enter your license key.
