Norton Password Manager 2004?

by alray1989 / March 28, 2006 6:16 AM PST

I have Norton System works (that includes Password Manager 2004) on a machine that I am going to discard.
On my current machine I have Norton Internet Security 2006 and SystemWorks 2006 (password manager is Not included)
Is there a way to move password Manger over to the new machine without screwing up everything?

Both systems use XP Home SP2.

Another user asked a similar question a month or two ago, but never reported back whether or not he was successful, so I'm not sure if this will work or not. Uninstall SystemWorks 2006 from your new computer and 2004 from your old. Run the installer for SystemWorks 2004 on your new computer, installing only the Password Manager, then run the 2006 installer, including everything you want to. That should give you what you desire while avoiding the issues of installing part of an older version on a newer version.

Hope this helps,

Thanks John,

I will give it a try. It will most likely be next week before I have the time.

I will report back.

I found out that Norton Password Manager 2004 is on the SystemWorks 2006 CD. It is not part of the normal SystemWorks install.
You have to browse the CD, find the NPM folder, click on Npmsetup.exe and proceed with the install. You must have your Product Activation Key from the NPM 2004 CD.

It took all of 4 minutes to install it.

I'm not a fan of SystemWorks myself, so I just installed a copy on a test machine to give it a run through. I assumed that a complete installation would include everything, so I never browsed the CD. (Give me a moment to slap myself. :)) The most interesting part is they require the NPM 2004 key...you'd think if the product is included on the SW2006 CD they'd allow you to unlock it using the SW2006 key. Well, ya learn something new everyday. Thanks for posting back...that information will sure help with future questions/requests.
