Upgrading from v5.5 to 8.1 - my experiences

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Just wanted to pass on my experience upgrading from v5.5 (circa 2009) to v8.1

The reason for the update is that the old java script doesn't work for the newer browsers and so i had to bite the bullet (i was holding onto the 'if it aint broke, don't fix it' rule --- but its broke) and upgrade.

First, i just tried using my old CONFIG.JS file with the new system, but i was told it was not compatible and did i want to upgrade. I chose yes but it didn't convert it perfectly.

So then i made a new CONFIG.JS from scratch with only 1 app to see what it created. From there it was easy to modify my existing file to be compatible with the new system.

I love the new system!

Thanks Kel, (and i'm sorry for your loss!)

Sop.

Jumping from 5.5 to 8.1 in one step is a little tough. I tried to make the update code as complete as possible, but it was meant to go from 5.5 to 7, 7 to 7.x, 7.x to 8.

Glad you like the program enough to stick with it this long.
