How to Receive Your Finished Goldmine Database

When we are finished with the conversion, we will notify you of the location of your file.  You can download it with any browser.  For security reasons, it will be known only to you  and require a password.  The file will come as a Self-Extracting file, for your convenience.   Then you can Download it and double click uncompress it into the C:\Goldmine\Common folder.

The location of this folder may vary.  Usually this folder is found in
C:\Goldmine\Common   or
C:\My Documents\Goldmine\Common

You should place the files in the following folders:

Method 1 - "All in one" - if you have just one database

When the .DBF file is opened by Goldmine, the other files follow automatically.

Method 3:

If you already have an existing Goldmine database, and want to merge information into it, we can provide you a Goldmine Transfer Set (.GTS) file.


Startup Files

This file, which is found near the GM EXE file, controls where Goldmine will look for system and data files upon startup.  You can modify it with any txt editor, such as NotePad.  You would then modify your GM.INI file as follows

LICENSE.DBF
GM.INI

Method 1:

With Method 1 you will need to copy your LICENSE.DBF from your Goldmine folder (with the GM EXE) in to the folder you are using for your database.  You can then change your GM.INI to the data folder, which may be under C:\Goldmine, or C:\Program Files\Goldmine, or some other drive other than C:

[GoldMine]
User=MASTER
UserLog=1
SysDir        =C:\Goldmine\Common\
GoldDir      =C:\Goldmine\Common\
CommonDir=C:\Goldmine\Common\
[GoldMine]
User=MASTER
UserLog=1
SysDir        =C:\Program Files\Goldmine\Common\
GoldDir      =C:\Program Files\Goldmine\Common\
CommonDir=C:\Program Files\Goldmine\Common\

or you can put them all in several folders

Method 2:

[GoldMine]
User=MASTER
UserLog=1
SysDir        =C:\Goldmine\
GoldDir      =C:\Goldmine\GMBase\
CommonDir=C:\Goldmine\Common\
[GoldMine]
User=MASTER
UserLog=1
SysDir        =C:\Program Files\Goldmine\
GoldDir      =C:\Program Files\Goldmine\GMBase\
CommonDir=C:\Program Files\Goldmine\Common\

When you start Goldmine with the above GM.INI you may see

Select Properties

Enter your Description, usually the database name you want to give it, and select the ... button to select the folder where you are keeping your database, such as C:\Goldmine\Common
