Issue

In upgrading to WorkPlace Tech 5.x from 4.x, what is there to understand about the project files during this conversion?

Environment

WorkPlace Tech 4.x, 5.x

Cause

Host operating system changing from Windows XP to Windows 7 and WorkPlace Tech 4.x is not compatible with Windows 7.

Resolution

A few things to keep in mind:

  • When a drawing from 4.x is opened in 5.x for the first time, the conversion may take awhile. Be patient and let it finish.
  • Once the drawing is converted to 5.x, it cannot be converted back to 4.x. Keep a backup of the 4.x files just in case.
  • Similarly, once a controller is downloaded with a database using 5.x, the controller will no longer work with WorkPlace Tech 4.x.
  • If, for some reason, it needs to be used with WorkPlace Tech 4.x, then its database will have to be reloaded using 4.x first.
