Transferring Lumion Bin Files

Hi Peter and Morten,
I just got my new computer, downloaded Lumion onto it and everything seems to be fine. I have not used it yet as I am transferring files from the loaner computer I was using. I am noticing some (5) BIN Files that are on the loaner. I do not see these files anywhere on the new computer, though I have downloaded Lumion onto it. Should these files be copied to the new computer?

Also, is there a procedure for uninstalling Lumion on the loaner computer or do I just delete it?

Thanks,
Ken

Hi Ken

... I do not see these files anywhere on the new computer, though I have downloaded Lumion onto it. Should these files be copied to the new computer?...
The files should be there unless they have been deleted and are in Windows Recycle Bin, or permanently removed.  Otherwise they will be in the folder you saved the Download Manager to when you re-downloaded to the new PC using the email.

They should be same file size as my attached example.  Make sure you also keep the exe installer.

If after doing a full search across your PC and for some reason the newly downloaded files are not there, then you can copy the ones from the loaner PC to the new and use those. 

The download and installer should be kept, in case you need to re-install (not usual) to save redownloading again.

Just make sure you have the version you need which should be the most recent Lumion version 5.7.2


Also, is there a procedure for uninstalling Lumion on the loaner computer or do I just delete it?

Uninstall it from Windows Control Panel thanks.  Make sure beforehand that Lumion was last closed down correctly and the license was released.  If you are unsure, just run Lumion on the loaner PC and close down to see the license being released.

And also remove - delete and remove from Recycle Bin the install files from the loaner PC.  You don't want someone else getting access to your licensed version  ;).

Hi Ken

Good.  When you get a spare 5 minutes, please run the Lumion Benchmark report for your new PC and post a screencapture of the result to Benchmark Topic. thanks.
