Courier Single-user Capability

Each Courier license allows its owner to install and run Courier on any Windows computer they own, including their official work Windows computer. It also allows the licensee’s spouse or children to install and run their own Courier versions at separate locations on the owner’s primary Windows PC.

The key points to remember are:

  • each Courier installation is self-contained in a single folder
  • each licensee may choose to create multiple Courier folders on the same or different Windows PCs
  • each Courier folder contains its own unique encrypted data and settings

Typically, a Courier licensee operates with a single folder on one Windows PC — often located at the default location of C:\Courier.

Example 1: Alisa installs Courier on her home Windows PC at C:\Courier. Since she operates only one Courier installation, she must update and backup only one installation.

Example 2: Alisa installs Courier on her home Windows PC at C:\Courier. She also installs Courier on her work Windows PC at C:\Courier. She then uses her home Courier to manage her personal-related destinations, and her work Courier to manage her work-related destinations. Since she operates two Courier installations, she must update and backup two separate installations.

Example 2.2: Alisa’s spouse Will installs Courier at C:\Courier2 then uses it to manage his personal destinations. Will must update and backup his own Courier installation.

Example 3: Alisa installs Courier on a flash drive then uses it to manage both personal and work destinations. She ejects and carries the flash drive to work, then back home later. Since she operates only one Courier installation, she must update and backup only one installation.

Tip: Updating a Courier installation is easy — just close Courier then logon to DigitalAppworks.com, download the latest installer, then run it pointed to the Courier folder.

Tip: Backing up a Courier installation is easy — just close Courier then copy the Courier folder to backup media, like another folder, drive, or cloud space. Or you can use Courier’s “Backup” function to create a local backup copy.

Tip: Restoring Courier is easy — just rename or delete the live folder, then copy the latest backup copy in its place.
