    everytime I try to "copy" the file onto my laptop. It wont let me import the file. Idk what this zip transfer stuff means. All I need to know is how to get from point A to point B. What I did was the export transfer. Emailed the file to myself. But it wont let me open when I do the import transfer file. It wont come up as the "Zip" transfer. These directions are not specific enough to what "copy" means. Do I need to download the program or something on my laptop? But theres no way im paying twice for this program. 

     

    Thanks.

    Hi Tyler,

    You will need to install the software on your second computer:
    https://www.fandraft.com/downloads

    Make sure to read the bottom of the link about transferring the license:

    It is important to note that if you only own one registration license, and you plan on transferring to a different computer, you may need to "deactivate<" your FanDraft software so you can activate it on the second computer. To do this, go to Help > Registration, and click on the “Deactivate” link. Note: You are only allowed to deactivate and transfer your license one time.

    Okay I switched the license to the computer I want to draft on.

    It still is not recognizing the file as a "Zip" Transfer. Looks like all it did was Upgrade the demo version to the full version.

    Did you follow these instructions exactly:

    To "Import Transfer File"

    1. Select "File > Import Transfer File"
    2. You will be prompted to create a new league file (so as not to accidentally overwrite a file you may be working on).
    3. Once created, you will be prompted to find the file to import. This file should be called "Transfer.zip". Click on this folder and your data will be imported.

    You may want to do the following instead.

    Just copy your league's xxx.fan from your other computer, over to the new one.
    Then select FILE > OPEN and select that league file.

    If you have any team songs loaded, you will have to re-import them.
