What is the procedure to move your application onto a new console?


The procedure to move Promodag Reports from a computer to another one is pretty straightforward:

1. On the first computer,
  • Save the content of the C:\Users\Public\Documents\Promodag\Reports\12\Batches and \Selections folders as well as the configuration file (C:\Users\Public\Documents\Promodag\Reports\12\Repex.pri) on a public share, or a USB key; if you use a LocaDB database, make a backup as well.
  • Uninstall Promodag Reports and delete the existing scheduled tasks.
2. On the new computer,
  • Install the latest release of Promodag Reports;
  • Move the LocalDB database (if applicable) from the old workstation to the new one in C:\Users\Public\Documents\Promodag\Reports\Databases;
  • Move the Promodag\Reports\12\Batches and \Selections folders you copied from the old workstation to the new one;
  • Start Promodag Reports;
  • Reconnect the SQL database or open the LocalDB database;
  • Recreate the scheduled tasks using the Tools > Task Automation option (do not directly use the Windows Scheduler);
  • Go to File > Import Message Tracking Data and re-select your Exchange servers for data import. It will assign them to the new console.
  • Go to File > Import IIS Data and repeat that operation (if applicable);
  • Go to File > Import Storage Size Data and repeat that operation (if applicable).
