    Okay, so my Dad uses this Sidekick 98 on his Windows XP desktop PC.
    It holds thousands of data on all of his companies customers, which is really damn important and could corrupt his business if he lost it.

    As it's Windows XP and the whole build is a dozen years old; does anyone know of ways of exporting the SDK file that comes with the Sidekick build, and importing it into a more updated, release software that we can use on windows 7/8/10?

    I can get hold of the SDK file but as it's so outdated, it's not compatible with any software I've found. Also when transferring the SDK onto the Sidekick software on a different build (I ran it on an XP emulator) it also doesn't import any of the data in the 'notes' field.

    Does anyone know any resolutions to this?

    His current PC's power supply has just broken and has me *****ing bricks.
