EssentrialPIM Install

I'm new to this forum, and also to PortableApps. I am also a fan of EssentialPIM, and have used it on my PC for a while now. I tried to use this procedure ""Essential PIM is actually already portable (without U3). They had a straight portable version available even before the U3 version. Just be sure to get the right package from them (you'll need to ask em as their site is a bit misleading) and install it to PortableApps\EssentialPIM. The Menu will pick it up."" to install it on my thumb drive,but it did not show up on the menu. I tried to refresh the menu icons (under options, but no go. Can this procedure still be done, and if not how can I install the program?
P.S. This info was found in this forum, but was dated 2007.
Thanks in advance.

use this version:

use this version: http://www.essentialpim.com/download/essentialpimport3.zip
make sure you have something like
X:\PortableApps\EssentialPIM\EssentialPIM.exe
Refresh.
Otherwise it won't show up.

It worked - Thanks!

Now, How can I move my appointments, etc. from my old app to the new one I can open using the menu?

copy the data over? I can't

copy the data over? I can't provide support for that. If you're using u3, you may have to play games to get at your data, but again I have no clue. Perhaps therir import utility?

Skyjacker,

I too use Essential PIM extensively. Usually the program saves all your info in a file named "Main.epim". When I went to using it with the portable apps.com platform, I simply copied that file into the main Essential PIM directory on my USB drive.

If you don't know where that is, you can usually find it by hitting File --> Save as in the main Essential PIM window. It should show you the default directory.

Hope that helps.
