How to Restore an application





How to Restore an application

In order to Restore a backed up application:

1- Create a DataEase application by choosing File>>New Application. DataEase opens the “New Application” dialog. Select an empty directory and enter a filename. Click OK;

2- Choose Application>>Utilities>>Restore Application. DataEase opens the “Restore” dialog;

3- Enter the directory with the backed up application in the Restore Source Directory box;

4-If you want to store the system messages in a file, check Log Messages to File. DataEase displays a default directory and default log file in the Message Log File box;

5- Choose an Error Handling option:  Ignore Error & Continue, Cancel, or Decide When Error Occurs;

6- Click OK to close the dialog. If you are restoring an application from floppy diskettes, DataEase displays a dialog asking you to insert the first restore diskette. If you insert a diskette in the wrong order, DataEase displays a dialog asking you to insert the correct diskette;

7- Insert the diskette in the floppy drive and click OK. DataEase restores the application you backed up and overwrites the new application. DataEase displays a dialog during the restore and another dialog when the restore is complete. If you entered a log file in step 4, the dialog asks if you want to view it;


8- Click OK to close the current application, or click Yes to view system messages. If you view the messages, double-click on the control box to close the window and the current application.


NOTE: After you restore an application, DataEase closes it and displays the Desktop Menu. To open the restored application, choose File>>Open Application.
