What happens to my API Key when I upgrade?

If you have not done so already, to now use the Import from Google Earth function in IRRICAD after the recent changes at Google please follow the steps on our "How To" forum post How To Acquire a Google Maps API Key (http://www.irricad.com/phpbb3/viewtopic ... =607#p1418).

Upgrading Version 16 to Version 17 will not change or affect your existing IrricadGEImport.ini file. However, if Version 17 has been installed along-side an existing version, that contains a working API key, please note that you will need to transfer the API key by:-
1. copying the IrricadGEImport.ini from the existing Irricad folder to the new installed folder (note that the default folder for Version 17 is located at C:\Program Files (x86)\Irricad\Irricad Pro 17).
or
2. Copy your API key from the safe place that you have backed it up to and paste the code into in the Version 17 IrricadGEImport.ini, where you see the line "GMApiKey=", commonly located in C:\Program Files (x86)\Irricad\Irricad Pro 17.
