Upgrading MAPS 2.1 to MAPS 3.1

Below describes a 4 parts process(upgrade; restore maps; restore maps integrated; and clean-up). Part 1, 2 and 4 must be completed irrespectively and part 3 is only required if you are using the Integrated MAPS(MAPS Datasource) functionality.

Steps to take.
Part 1

  1. Make a copy of the whole c:\MAPS directory.
  2. Make a copy of the whole directory of C:\program files(x86)\ adroit technologies directory.
  3. Now you can perform a Uninstall of MAPS 2.1 and when asked if you want to do a complete uninstall(remove project data) then click NO.
  4. Do a MAPS 3.1 install.

Part 2
5. After the install is completed, check if you have a “projects” folder in c:\programdata\adroit technologies\maps\configurations\default and ensure all your existing projects is in there? If your projects is not in there then go to c:\program files(x86)\adroit technologies\maps\projects and copy all your existing projects folders from here into c:\programdata\adroit technologies\maps\configurations\default\projects.
6. Also check if you have a “Data” folder in c:\programdata\adroit technologies\maps\configurations\default and if not, then go to c:\program files(x86)\adroit technologies\maps and copy the Data folder from here into c:\programdata\adroit technologies\maps\configurations\default.

Part 3
7. If you are using the integrated MAPS functionality(MAPS Datasource), then copy the “MA Process Suite” folder from c:\program files(x86)\adroit technologies\maps\projects into c:\programdata\adroit technologies\maps\configurations\default\projects.
8. If you are using the integrated MAPS functionality(MAPS Datasource), then copy all the sub folders of folder c:\maps\projects into c:\programdata\adroit technologies\maps\configurations\default\files
9.If you are using the integrated MAPS functionality(MAPS Datasource), then for each project folder in c:\programdata\adroit technologies\maps\configurations\default\files\ you need to run the following command line c:\program files(x86)\adroit technologies\maps\mapsmigrate.exe -dbp "c:\programdata\adroit technologies\maps\configurations\default\files<project folder name>\db<project name>.sdf

Part 4
10. Delete the folder c:\program files(x86)\adroit technologies\maps\projects
11. Delete the folder c:\program files(x86)\adroit technologies\maps\data
12. Delete the folder c:\maps
