51. NOTES ON UPGRADING V11 OR OLDER TO V14

Post by jovivier »

If upgrading an older version of IRRICAD or installing on a computer that does not have IRRICAD use the full installation http://www.irricad.com/irricad/download ... 4Setup.exe which will need to register the Visual CADD engine via the internet. Extra notes are available from http://www.irricad.com/irricadpro/irric ... pgrades/66 and http://www.irricad.com/irricad/download ... n12-14.pdf .

If upgrading an older version and you do not select "Upgrade Only" during the installation IRRICAD V14 will be installed into a new folder (Irricad Pro 14) and the existing installation will be uninstalled. Because the registry still has the paths pointing to the old folder, which will no longer contain reports, symbols etc., a message will appear about "No report templates are found". Also when drawing hydraulic items the symbols (junctions, outlets etc.) will not be found and a message to look for the symbol will occur.

To fix this:
a) Go to Settings|Drawing Items and click the [Restore Defaults] button - now all paths will point to the Irricad Pro XX folder.
b) Also go to Settings|Irrigation Items and click the [Restore Defaults] button - now the database symbols path will be set to Irricad Pro 14\Symbols\Database.
c) Click the [Save As Defaults] button.
d) Close IRRICAD so the new paths are saved in the Registry.

Always follow the upgrade or installation with the latest patch, (only required in Pre-v18 versions. Post v18 the installation contains all patches).
