The migration to 7.2 process





The migration to 7.2 process

1. Run the Migration tool found in 7.2. Open it form the Start menu of your workstation as shown in the below screen-shot or open the demigrate.exe file directly found in the folder of DataEase;


2. Then, click on the [Next] button to proceed with the migration process when the below screen appears;



3. Navigate to the source application you want to migrate to 7.2 and highlight it as shown in the example in the below screen and then click the [Ok] button;



4. Click [Next] to move to the next step to select the target directory that will hold your new migrated application;


Please Note: the target folder must be an empty folder.


5. After selecting the target folder, click [Next]. The migration options screen will appear as shown below:



Please note: when you select the date format, make sure that you select the correct format which matches your source application; otherwise the data of the date fields in the migrated application will be corrupted.


6. After you finish selecting the desired options, click the [Next] button. A warning screen will be displayed as shown below. Click [Start] to start the migration process;



7. When the migration finishes, make sure that you get “0error(s), 0warnings(s)” at the end of the dialog box as shown in the screen below.


If there are any errors or warning messages, you will need to review them one by one and fix them either in the 7.2 application or in the original application (before the migration) and then re-migrate it again (start the process from the beginning, from step one of above).



Note: the migration log is kept in a file called DEMigrate.log found in the same directory of your migrated application.


8. Finally, click the [Finish] button to close the dialog. Now you are able to open the new migrated application with DataEase 7.2!
