Upgrade from Cardbox-Plus
Cardbox 2.0Program files User manual
Cardbox 2.0 has now been superseded by Cardbox 3 (upgrade details here), but if you are still using it then you can download the following files.
This is the update program that brings your existing Cardbox 2.0 installation up to the latest version. It can also be used if you need to make a completely fresh installation of Cardbox 2.0, but in that case you need a couple of extra steps at the beginning: instructions are here.
Note that if you are using Cardbox 1.0 or 1.1 then you need to have a technical support and upgrade subscription before you can run this software.
Click on the appropriate link above to download the installer file (uk200.exe or nl200.exe).
These instructions are for upgrading an existing Cardbox installation. If you are making a completely fresh installation, see the additional instructions below.
1. Check your subscription - IMPORTANT!!!
(If you are already running version 2.0, you can skip this section)
If you are upgrading from version 1.0 or 1.1, Cardbox version 2.0 will only run if you have an appropriate technical support and update subscription and the subscription has been loaded into Cardbox. Here is how to check:
Find the downloaded installer file uk200.exe (or nl200.exe), then double-click on it to run it.
The program will ask you where you want to install Cardbox. Since this is an upgrade, you should install Cardbox in the same place (directory or folder) as your previous installation, and this is normally the location that Setup will suggest for you.
Installing the new version on top of the old one in this way does not damage any of your custom settings or macro definitions: it simply upgrades the program files.
3. Upgrading on a network
No-one on the network should have Cardbox running when the upgrade is being performed.
If each user on the network has his own separate copy of the Cardbox program files, then you will need to upgrade each of those copies separately.
If all users share a single copy of the Cardbox files, stored in a shared location accessible to them all, then you only have to upgrade one user. Although a Cardbox installation does include some files that are stored in each user's System directory (which is separate for every user), none of these files are affected by an upgrade.
There is one file that is not included in the download. It is called cboxser.dll and it contains details of your licence. Cardbox will not run without it.
If you have a previous installation of Cardbox on an old computer, you can copy cboxser.dll from there; otherwise you will have to ask us to send you a copy.
The installation procedure for a completely fresh installation is then:
The Cardbox 2.0 user manual is available for download in Adobe Acrobat format.
To view the manual directly in your browser, click on the links shown.
To download the manual for later viewing, right-click on the links shown and then choose "Save As", "Save Link As" or "Save Target As" from the drop-down menu. We recommend doing this, because we find that Acrobat Reader is faster and more reliable when it is not being run from within a browser; also, you can then create shortcuts to the downloaded manual for easier and quicker reference.
