What do I need to do to replace/upgrade my old EZ Touch panel to a CMore panel?
The EZ Touch panels & EZ Touch Editor software that we used to sell are obsolete, they were replaced with our C-More product line. The C-More requires its own software programming software.
- The C-More software does not communicate with the EZ Touch panels.
- The EZ Touch software does not communicate with the C-More panels.
EZ and CM are manufactured and developed by two different companies, so they are not interchangeable.
There is an upgrade path available:
- You need a disk copy of the EZ Touch Project
- Convert the project in the EA-PGMSW (V2.78) software
- Once it is in the EA7 format, it can be opened in EA9-PGMSW software, which is the currently supported C-More platform.
The C-More software (version 2.78 and earlier) can open the EZ Touch files created with EZ Touch Editor version 3.1A, which is the last version of that software we sold.
The C-More software for the EA7 series panels can convert the project and you can then save it as a C-More project, which you can load into a C-More panel.
If you don't have the EZ Touch Editor software version 3.1A, but you do have an earlier version, you can download the free upgrade to version 3.1A from our website at:

The disk copy of the EZTouch project needs the following file extensions for the conversion to work:
If you have a project with a .EZP
extension, that project was saved with a later version of the software from the panel manufacturer. The C-More software cannot
If you have the appropriate project files noted above, but do not have a copy of the EA7 programming software, you can contact Technical Support
and we can attempt to convert the project for you.
