Syslog Watcher 5.0 uses own program files location, unique service name, and work folders so that it can be installed along with previous Syslog Watcher 4.x.
Syslog Watcher 5 uses a different way to keep installed license keys, so you need to reinstall your license key.
Syslog Watcher 5.0 supports importing settings from a file. Perform the following step to transfer an existing configuration to the new server:
Important: Stop the previous version (4.x) of Syslog Watcher server.
Syslog Watcher 5.0 uses the same storage format as version 4.2 or later 4.x, but a different default folder for it. So, the only thing you need to transfer the syslog storage is 1) to copy the previous storage files to the new folder, or 2) to change the storage folder path to point to the old location. If you imported the settings as described above in 3., then you have the syslog storage folder pointed to the previous location already.
Default syslog storage folders:
Syslog Watcher 4.x: C:\ProgramData\SnmpSoft\Syslog Watcher 4\Storage\
Syslog Watcher 5.0: C:\ProgramData\Syslog Watcher\Storage\
If you imported the settings as described above in 3., then the server log folder can be pointed to the old folder. It is recommended to change the folder path to the new location:
Syslog Watcher 4.x: C:\ProgramData\SnmpSoft\Syslog Watcher 4\Logs\
Syslog Watcher 5.0: C:\ProgramData\Syslog Watcher\Logs\
