I don't mind installing MySQL on the Windows 7 system. However, how do we move the databases from the XP system. Don't want to lose the existing calendars as they are populated with data.

The existing calendar is also stored on each computer that is able to access the shared database. Moving the database to a different server won't result in any data loss.

Before updating the Sharing Options with the new server, open the Calendar Properties under the account that owns the shared calendar. Click the "Sync" tab and change the sync setting to "Do not sync". Click OK. A message will appear indicating the calendar will be removed from other computers. Click OK.

After installing MySQL Server on one of your Windows 7 computers, update the Sharing Options on each computer to use the new server. Open the Calendar Properties on the computer where the shared calendar was previously set to "Do not sync" and change it back to "Sync with VueMinder on other computers". The shared calendar will upload to the server and automatically appear on other computers.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.
