4. Start the program and open your database

  • New computer: Start Comic Collector
  • Use menu “File > Open Database” and open your Comic Collector database file.
  • If you can’t find the file, it should be in your “Documents > Comic Collector” folder and it has an *.CMC extension.

5. Optional: Fix your cover images automatically

If you don’t see your cover images right away, it could be that the filepaths to your image/other files are broken. Use the ““Tools > Maintenance > Update File Links” screen to fix this.
