Before You Upgrade the DATABridge Host

Before you upgrade, please note the following:

  • Some files are overwritten by the installation. If you have modified these files, use the following section to write down your changes before you run DATABridge Installation WFL. After installation, you can edit the new files with your changes. We also recommend that you make backup copies of these files using the copy command. For example:

    copy DATA/= as SAVE/DATA/=

    copy SYMBOL/= as SAVE/SYMBOL/=

    copy WFL/= as SAVE/WFL/=

  • You must recompile any tailored support libraries after you upgrade. See the DATABridge Host Administrator's Guide.
  • You can use Accessory parameter files from DATABridge 5.2 with DATABridge 6.1 or later. If DATABridge 6.x includes new options you want to use, you can add them by typing them into your existing parameter file.
