Upgrade missing designer.exe ?

#1

Postby Segi » Tue Apr 09, 2019 11:59 pm

While following the upgrade instructions, I got to step 8 under the section "2. Upgrade the Studio" which says to copy designer.exe from <client>/designer/32Bit or <client>/designer/64Bit

It doesn't appear that the designer folder with the 32 and 64 bit exe was packaged with the zip file.

I searched the entire folder and there isn't a designer.exe executable anywhere in the extracted folder.

It's a mistake. It should say copy verj.io.exe (this replaces designer.exe and should be used to start the studio). File designer.exe can be removed.

Jon,

I think I found another mistake in the upgrade instructions.

In section 2 step 15 says

"15. Copy directory docidx from <server>/web_content/WEB-INF to <webapp>/WEB-INF."

I'm pretty sure that it should be

"15. Copy directory docidx from <client>/IntegratedServer/ebasetest/WEB-INF to <webapp>/WEB-INF."

By the way,I am working on a Windows batch file that automates upgrading Verj IO. if anyone wants to help me test it out, please let me know.

Segi,

Thanks for this, we'll change it.

For info, the next major release - should be V5.6 - is going to re-structure a lot of things and will be the base for a new automated upgrade. It works by separating all the customer configuration from the Verj.io configuration. Then a future upgrade just replaces the Verj.io bits.

Regards
Jon

Jon,

I'm really glad to hear this. I've been using eBase since at least 4.x and the lack of automatic upgrades has always been a little annoying. I'm glad to hear that this is being resolved
