How can I migrate from Promodag Reports version 10 to version 11?

Please follow these steps to migrate from version 10 to version 11:
  1. Install Promodag Reports v.11. Version 11 can perfectly be installed on the same machine as version 10. However, both versions use a separate, different database format and they cannot share a common database. 
  2. Start Promodag Reports v.11.
  3. Create a new database, or open an existing database.
    • If you decide to create a new database, the software will remain in evaluation mode until you apply a valid v.11 license file to that database.
    • If you decide to open an existing database, you will be immediately prompted for the v. 11 license file, and then your database will automatically be converted  to the version 11 format.
  4. Migrate your existing report option and batch files. You can transfer all the custom reports, "favorites" and batch files you created in the previous version of  by following these steps:
    • Locate those files in your old installation of Promodag Reports. To find the path to \Batches and \Selections sub-directories in this old version, start it and check the General tab of Tools > Options of your v10 installation. The default path are C:\Users\Public\Documents\Promodag\Reports\10\Batches and C:\Users\Public\Documents\Promodag\Reports\10\Selections. If you have already removed it, search for *.pro and *.prb files on the computer.
    • Copy them, and then paste them into the common program setting sub-directories of v.11. This path is displayed in the General tab of Tools > Options of Promodag Reports v.11. The default path is C:\Users\Public\Documents\Promodag\Reports\11.
    • Test your custom reports and save them again if necessary: some new options have been added in v.10.
    • Test your batch files. You can use the Tools > Run a Group of Reports to test all reports contained in a batch file.
  5. Delete all Windows scheduled tasks related to Promodag Reports v.10. and recreate them using the Tools > Task Automation option of Promodag Reports v.11. Alternatively, edit the v.10 tasks in the Windows Task Scheduler and change the path to v.11, i.e. C:\Program Files (x86)\Promodag\Reports11\Repex.exe.
