Step 3.
Migration process
1) Upgrade to latest version of PC-NG on server
2) Backup Server from PC-NG admin console | Options Tab | Backup Tab | Export Now button. Rename backup to (avoids typo's in later steps) and copy it to the root of C drive E.G C:\
3) Take a copy of the complete NG folder structure in the event we need to refer to any configuration files later then Unistall Papercut NG from ADD  / REMOVE Programs
4) Install PCMF on server with new version (just do a basic next, next, next install)
Restore backup on server
1) Stop Papercut services on server
2) From the command prompt .\Papercut mf\server\bin\win perform the following commands
3) db-tools init-db -f
4) db-tools import-db -f "C:\" 
5) Restart Papercut services
6) Logon to admin console.
Step 4.
Other considerations are to enable and display the DEVICE tab. From PC-MF admin console | Options Tab | Advanced Tab | External Hardware Integration menu | Tick the check box labelled "Enable external hardware integration (for supported devices only)"
