Trouble using Restore Catalog

Post by pdarrah »

I just setup a new PC. I backed up the catalog and thumbnails from the old PC and saved it to a folder on my NAS. After installing Photo Supreme on the new PC, I tried to use Catalog - Restore. A dialog pops up almost instantly saying it is complete and the program will close. When I re-open Photo Supreme, the catalog is still empty.

Am I missing a step? This is what I found in the Maintenance document about moving to a new computer....

The folder that has the backup on the NAS looks fine. There are 4 folders and 7 files. The Idimager.cat.db and idimager.thumbs.db are both large files as I would expect.

Any suggestions would be deeply appreciated!

Rename the idimager.cat.db file to photosupreme.cat.db and idimager.thumb.db file to photosupreme.thumb.db in the backup folder.

Then try the restore again
