    How do I install doogiePIM after I've downloaded it?
    A: See here:

    May I install and use on more than one computer for my personal use?
    A: Yes, you may install on more than one computer for personal usage. When you "network share" your database with others, ie: connecting to the same database at the same time. That's when you need a multi-user license.

    May I move the application folder, after installation, to a different location?
    A: If you've used the installation version, then it's not a good idea to move it as Windows would get confused and would invalidate the Control Panel Uninstall list.
    If you're using the Portable version, then yes, you may move the folder around your hard disk or to other removeable disk as you need.

    A: When you have completed the uninstall operation it will only uninstall the doogiePIM application.

    Is doogiePIM network compatible?
    A: You are able to open database files from across a network, there's file and record locking so the number of user connections is denoted by the licence type you've purchased.
    If you've purchased a 2+ multi-user license, then 2+ users can open the same database at the same time. A single standalone edition can only be used by 1 user at any one time.

    Can I run more than one copy of doogiePIM at the same time?
    A: No. doogiePIM was designed to run only as one process. Therefore you can only open one database at a time.

    Does doogiePIM have any backup precautions to safe guard my data?
    A: doogiePIM can create encrypted files saved to a backup location using the built-in encryption/decryption backup and restore facilities. There's a Shield looking icon on the main toolbar to quickly Backup your database. It is advisable to do this everyday.

    Is doogiePIM compatible with Microsoft Word?
    A: To some degree, yes. doogiePIM will try to understand as much of the formatting as possible, however, Word has many features so not everything can be converted. Some Word DOC files and RTF can be imported into the Notes and Journal sections of doogiePIM. Of course, you can copy/paste formatted text to and from Word.

    doogiePIM comes with an American dictionary, how can I obtain dictionaries for other languages?
    A: doogiePIM comes with an American dictionary and Roget's Thesaurus. If you require further dictionaries, they can be downloaded freely from the Download page.

    To install any extra dictionaries, you just need to copy the downloaded dictionary to the folder where you installed doogiePIM to: eg. "C:\Program Files\doogiePIM". Run doogiePIM, then select from the Main menu Edit/Spell checker settings, click on Locate dictionaries and follow the instructions on screen.

    What's the maximum amount of data that doogiePIM will hold?
    A: It depends on your storage capacity and operating system.
    However, it is a good idea to keep the database size to less than 4 Gigabytes. 4GB gives you storage for literally millions of records and is easier to move around on a USB stick, should you need to.

    If I buy doogiePIM, what version upgrades do I get free?

    I need a particular feature that doogiePIM doesn't have, can you include it?
    A: If you need something but doogiePIM can't do it, then write in and let us know. If we can implement the idea and we think other users will also benefit, then it will be implemented in a future update.
