Help with Upgrade from ver 3.66 to ver 5

Post by DaveP03 » Fri Jul 05, 2019 5:29 pm

just purchased ver 5 with discount from ken.
I think version 3.66 was 32bit only, new version is 64bit?
Saw something about changing the reg file before import from 32bit to 64bit by adding the WOW64

1.I exported/backup settings from the about tab from the options
2.Exported each individual camera's setting from each camera general tab on the properties page

Do I need to De-activate ver 3 first

anything else?

V5 will bring across the BI settings, and, cameras settings from V4. And, there should be a .reg file in the v5 folder with all the camera settings to import, IF they did not import with the upgrade.

Not sure if this is the case with v3. And, probably not a good idea to import anything from v3 into v5 after the upgrade. Also, not a good idea to start v3 up after upgrading to v5. Seems they use all/some of the same registry branches.

You backup up v3 okay.
No, you don't need to deactivate v3.

1. If your running v3 as a service (not sure if v3 has a service avail), stop it first.
2. Shutdown V3.
3. Upgrade to V5.
4. Make sure you read the 'installation notes'. Good idea to copy & save for reference. I think it will already be in the v5 folder as 'ReadMe.txt'.
