Replace PC Hosting ProCal SQL Database

Modified on Mon, 24 Oct 2022 at 09:29 AM

This article is intended for users that are running their ProCal SQL Database on a PC that is also being used to operate the software. Customers that are replacing server infrastructure should contact Transmille directly for advice. 

  • Take a copy of the existing C:\ProCal folder.

  • To use the same update version as the previous system:
    • From the copy of the ProCal folder from the old PC, copy the following folders/files and paste them to the corresponding location on the new PC. Overwrite if prompted:
      • C:\ProCal\Programs\ProCal.exe
      • C:\ProCal\Programs\ProSet.exe
      • C:\ProCal\Programs\ProEdit.exe
      • C:\ProCal\Programs\ProCert.exe
      • C:\ProCal-Track\ProCal-Track.exe (if ProCal-Track is being used on the system)
      • C:\ProSales\ProSales.exe (if ProSales is being used on the system)


  • To transfer labels, reports, etc, copy the relevant folders from the copy of the ProCal folder from the older system:
    • Reports: ProCal\Reports_SQL
    • Labels: ProCal\Lables
    • Procedure prompt and help files: ProCal\Procedures
    • Connection prompts: ProCal\Connection Prompts

  • You should now be able to launch the software and use it as before. There may be an issue with file paths, if they were configured to the old PC. If this is the case and the software fails to launch, please contact Transmille for further assistance.

  • To allow other PCs to connect to the new database, update the SQL connection files on the station PC(s) to match the ones on the newly installed PC.
