How do I reinstall KennelSuite on a new or repaired computer?


Follow the instructions for your version. Your version is displayed when you click Help > About...

Versions 8 & 9 (KennelSuite 2006 & KennelSuite IX respectively)

  1. Install KennelSuite from the "Download software" link below. These links connect to the most current version of KennelSuite 2006 and KennelSuite IX. Make sure you download the same version that you have a license for.

  2. If you have Vista, right-click the setup file and select 'Run as Administrator'.

  3. If you have Vista or Windows 7, you must not install into the Program Files folder. We recommend that you use the default location, i.e.,
    C:\Plane Software\KennelSuite 2006 or C:\Plane Software\KennelSuite IX, depending on your version.

  4. Verify that it starts as an evaluation at the Enterprise level

  5. If you've downloaded from one of the links below, you don't need to check for updates, since the download is always the most current. If you installed from a CD, you should click Tools -> Check for Updates and get any updates newer than your CD

  6. Click File -> Restore from the main window to add your database from your last backup

  7. Restart and verify that your data is correct.

  8. If KennelSuite still thinks it is an evaluation (asks for your serial number or unlock code), manually copy the license file (ks8.lic or ks9.lic depending on your version) from your daily backup disk to the KennelSuite 2006 or KennelSuite IX data folder, depending on your version, and restart the program. You will also find your license credentials included in the original e-mail you received when you purchased.

If you have misplaced your program CD, you can download the equivalent. The following locations will always have the most current versions.
