Moving FastDraw to a new computer

 

Backup Up Your Plays to the Cloud

To get started on your new computer, the first step is to save a Backup of your play library to the FastModel cloud server, which can be done by clicking the Sync icon. (More info on the Sync process can be found here.)

Installation and Activation on New Computer

Now for your new computer, you can download the FastDraw software from our downloads page. Once you have installed FastDraw, you will need to activate the new computer. If you do not know your e-mail and password, you can click the forgot password link. Alternatively, you can click the Activate with Key link to switch to key entry mode, and you can then copy and paste in your activation key, which is contained in your original activation email.






Restoring Your Sync File

Once you have completed your activation and opened FastDraw, you should receive a prompt asking you if you would like to download your Sync file. Choose "Restore On-line Backup" to download your plays to your new computer.


If you cancelled the prompt to download the Sync file, or if you would like to do it at a later time, you can manually download your Sync file at any time. To do this, click the Sync Icon. Clicking Sync will allow you to select and download your file so that you can access your plays on the new computer.




Saving Your File

Once your Sync file finishes downloading, open the File menu from the top menu bar and choose Save File. This will save your file locally on your hard drive, which also ensures that the file will open automatically the next time you start FastDraw. From this point forward, be sure to continue to frequently click the Sync icon to save your work to our cloud server, offering an additional layer of protection for your save file.



Installing FastDraw on a second computer


With your FastDraw license, you can install the software on unlimited computers for one user, and you can activate the software using your e-mail address and password, or with the activation key that you received with your FastDraw purchase. You can then sync your computers using the Sync feature.



Installing FastDraw

To install FastDraw on any computer, you can download the FastDraw software at any time at our downloads page.



Activating FastDraw

Once you have downloaded and installed the FastDraw program, open the software and you will be taken to the activation menu. Here you can activate your software using your e-mail and password. If you do not know your e-mail and password, you can click the forgot password link. Alternatively, you can click the Activate with Key link to switch to key entry mode, and you can then copy and paste in your activation key, which is contained in your original activation email.



Syncing Your Computers

After you have installed and activated FastDraw on a new computer, you can open FastDraw on your old computer and click the Sync icon to save a copy of your play library to our cloud server. Back your new computer, find and click the Sync icon. Clicking Sync will download your file and give you access to your full play library.


Whenever you switch between computers, simply follow the Sync process to keep your computers synced so that you will have access to your full play library on each computer.
