Great software. I have tried many and it's the best and easiest to configure. I will purchase the Service build today and wish to install it on a machine that is already running the free server. I don't want to lose the settings or directory stucture that is there now. Can this be done? I would like some input before I go through the install. Thanks, jeff

1. Before you uninstall the DEMO version make sure you backup your
users.xml and security.xml files. They can be found in the folder you've installed QnE FTP: C:\Program Files\Quick 'n Easy FTP Service\.
2. Uninstalll the DEMO.
3. Install the FULL version.
4. Copy the file users.xml and security.xml back to the
C:\Program Files\Quick 'n Easy FTP Service\ folder.
5. Start the FTP service using the Control Panel applet.

Note: Make sure you've closed the control panel before you uninstall the demo or else the applet will not be removed.

I didn't install the demo server version. I installed the free version 2.7.1. There is no /programs/Quick n Easy directory. I found the users.xml file only in \documents\username\locals\temp\~~pdtemp folder. I have the users home directory in a folder called \server. I hope I can save the setup and not lose access to this folder.

Yes, you can use this users.xml too.
So forget about the uninstall part, and just install the service version.
And copy your existing users.xml to the C:\Program Files\Quick 'n Easy FTP Service\ folder after you've completed the setup.

Admin,
I like that name. Well it worked just fine. I did load the users.xml file and all was well. I did have to set the passwords for the users over again. Then all is up and running smooth. I have set up Microsoft 2003 servers to run FTP as well as other Microsoft OS's and a few Linux servers, but this is the easiest one period! Great software. Thanks for your fast reply. Jeff Poulsen
