Moving Abacus Evolve
Has anyone successfully moved this between servers? I'm banging my head against a brick wall here!

No, but have you seen this information (reproduced from Abacus Evolve I-Planner How to Guides)

The I-Planner database needs to be moved from one server to another, what is the best procedure to follow?
Please note in order for this to work the installation routine must be exactly the same for both installs i.e. the content and database must be in identical directories on the different servers.
1. Install Abacus Evolve on the new server. Launch Abacus and enter login information.
2. Before copying database from your old server you need to stop the following service on both servers: MSSQL$Halley.
3. Copy the following from the old server to the same location on the new server: (default location)
C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL ServerMSSQL$HALLEY\Data
4. Then restart the service: MSSQL$Halley on the new server.
5. Restart the server to push through the changes made above.
Note – we have tested this process on our test network here, but it is not a recommended installation procedure and as such we can not provide support on any errors which may occur."
The note is good...

I also spoke to my brother in law who works with SQL databases on a daily basis. His are designed to be moved between servers as he often has client databases on his laptop.

I've had a few problems with just the install. Just wondered if the stuff from the heinemann website might help, but going on the level of support they seem to offer generally, it was probably a long shot. If it's any consolation, I have suggested to their support service that their managers should look on edugeek for feedback on how happy the techie community is with Abacus Evolve...

Another way to do it would be using Virtual machines.
VMWare have software that will allow you to copy a physical machine into a VM appliance.
.. why do people keep reviving old threads ?

I tried the VM route when a student teacher wanted to use the software on their own Vista laptop - it worked but the concept and slowness of a machine inside a machine defeated them
