Correct procedure for upgrading from 3.51 to 4.1

Postby Steve » Tue Feb 09, 2010 6:11 pm

I've got the 4.15 version of Handbase Enterprise, and 3.51 of same installed on the device.
Is there a correct upgrade procedure to ensure data integrity on my device?

Do I install version 4 over the version 3 installation on the PC?
I assume that on the device it is an overwrite operation.
Do I install version 4 to its own directory, and then uninstall version 3?

The documentation is lacking here, or I missed the obvious.

nevermind,... :lol:
I found article 322 via a google search on handbase 3.5 to 4.
This article did not turn up via the search box on ddhsoftware.com... strange.

never the less upgrade went off with one hitch,... My primary business database file disappeared.
Needed to recover it from backup.

All is well with the world again.

Hi there,

Thanks for following up before I even got to this posting. Sorry it was confusing to you- was not meant to be as you should just run the installer and it does all that is necessary.

At least it's all water under the bridge for you now!
