Re: Recorder 6 upgrades page

Having performed the upgrade on our network installation (upgrading from my PC), with no errors I was very pleased. I rebuilt the indexes and all seems fine.

However, (there is always a however) when I go to Help, About I would expect to see the new version listed but it still says 6.6.8.59. When I look at the Setting table in the SQL database it does correctly say 6.7.2.77.

Has anyone else had this? Is this a network upgrade problem or have I missed a process? I have not tried it on a standalone install yet so do not know if that is a problem too?

Thanks

Re: Recorder 6 upgrades page

Sounds like the database has been upgraded, but not the program files. Are you able to access any of the new features? I can't tell you what they are as I don't have Recorder in front of me and can't find a direct link to the release notes (perhaps Steve could upload a seperate release notes file?), but there's a reference keywords feature you might want to look for, and a retain filters (can't remember the exact wording) option in Tools > Options. If no new features are present, the it sounds like the new recorder executable hasn't copied across.

Re: Recorder 6 upgrades page

Charles,

Hope your office problems are not too serious!

Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. The database had indeed upgraded but the other features had not. The foolish thing I did was ran the upgrade exe from my workstation hard drive :rolleyes: Where I should have ran it from was the area on our novell network which we installed Rec6 originally from. I have successfully copied over the files manually, which it would have done in the upgrade, to their correct places.

It now really does all seem to work great with correct version and additional features.

Many thanks
