Activate Sticky Password on your new computer with the SAME License Key as on the old computer.

When I try to import on my new computer, I open the Import Data, select Load Passwords and select the pwd file that I exported from my old machine. I select Overwrite (or Merge) and then get "This database entry was created by SP version which is not compatible with the version you are currently running. ..." Both machines are running Sticky Password PRO

Hi JimBob,

just to be sure - you mean .pws file - exported encrypted database file, right? Not .pwd

From which version of Sticky Password have you exported the .pws file?
