As long as you are only using a single modem, it is easy to convert an installation from the full Now SMS/MMS Gateway to NowSMS Lite.

Follow these steps so that you do not lose any configuration settings (if MMS is enabled you may need to re-apply MMS settings after these steps):

1. In the NowSMS configuration:
a. Make sure there is only one modem entry in the SMSC list.
b. On the “Service” page, uncheck “Run as service” for both the SMS and MMS services.
(Answer yes when asked “Remove service”)

2. Delete SMSGW.EXE from the NowSMS program directory (default is \Program Files (x86)\NowSMS or \Program Files\NowSMS), otherwise the NowSMS Lite install will refuse to run.

3. Delete NowSMS shortcut links from the Windows desktop and start menu.

4. Download the NowSMS Lite trial version from our web site at http://www.nowsms.com/download-free-trial and install to the same directory. When NowSMS Lite starts, it should recognize your existing configuration and license details. On the “Status” page, check “Run as service” to start the NowSMS Lite version of the services.

It is also easy to convert from NowSMS Lite to the full Now SMS/MMS Gateway. This is recommended only if you are currently running a trial version, or have purchased an upgrade license. Otherwise, if you attempt to upgrade a licensed version of NowSMS Lite to the full Now SMS/MMS Gateway, performance will be limited to 1 message per minute.

Follow these steps so that you do not lose any configuration settings:

1. In the NowSMS configuration: On the “Status” page, uncheck “Run as service”, and Answer yes when asked “Remove service”.

2. Delete SMSLITE.EXE from the NowSMS program directory (default is \Program Files (x86)\NowSMS or \Program Files\NowSMS).

3. Delete NowSMS shortcut links from the Windows desktop and start menu.

4. Download the Now SMS/MMS Gateway trial version from our web site at http://www.nowsms.com/download-free-trial and install to the same directory. On the “Service” page, check “Run as service” for both the SMS and MMS services to start the full version of the services.
