  1. Did anyone ever answer this question? I have just upgraded on Mac from 1.38 to 1.41 and similar thing. I saved my old data files and replaced them in the new version, but it still opens with old account names from a long time ago. It has the time entries for work done but just Untitled. Any help out there?? I did this because since upgrading to Mavericks on Mac the on/off indicator (green icon in the dock when using the program) wasn't working. I can open the old version and it has everything correct, so why won't the data update when I save into the new version's folder?
  2. Thank you so much for this thread! Even though I'm on a Mac I desperately needed this information. I thought I was just upgrading HourGuard, but because I'd just installed the new Lion OS, it actually replaced the whole program and data - wiped everything! Luckily I eventually found the data files on my Time Machine backup (under HD/Library/Application Support/NCH Software/HourGuard. On the Mac it has the three sub-folders of Accounts, Tasks and Timesheets all in there and an Options.dat file.

  3. Hi and sorry if this is a silly question, but I'm a bit of a novice with upgrading etc. Previously I've been able to upgrade my versions and my old data was still in the new version. However, today I have upgraded to Mac OX Lion and realised my HourGuard wasn't compatible. I downloaded the newest version and it asked if I wanted to replace the file and I said yes. Mistake! Now when I open the new HourGuard it is TOTALLY NEW - doesn't have any of my old Tasks or time that I haven't yet billed for. I finally found the HourGuard data folder in my Time Machine backups but I can't restore the
  4. Hi, I see that you have no response to this. I have the same question. Normally NCH have been great for software, but I am totally confused with Express Invoicing and Express Accounts. In Windows I could download together and they link, as per the instructions. This is great to research for my clients, however I am on a Mac and downloaded both programs for my own use, but now find I can't link payments from the invoicing to the accounts. Very inconvenient. By the time you buy both programs you could purchase another basic accounting program. Why can things work on Windows and not on a Mac?
