Import from version 7

Post by iafdesign » December 15th, 2011, 1:03 pm

I have downloaded and installed the trial version of version 8.0.1 to have a look before purchasing. Tried to import a project from version 7 (full version owned) however it throws the following error message.

"Error converting to new project format."

From file>import> select *.sit file to import which then gives messages above.

Can projects be imported from 7, if so how. To re-create then all and loose data would be a difficult and time consuming.

Thanks, Ian

Hello Ian,

please try to manually copy your sit files from the old project directory to the new ASEOPS 8 project directory.

The default project directory is C:\Users\YOUR_USERNAME\Documents\ASEOPS 8

Thank you - manually copying the project file across worked fine.

Is there anything in version 8 that will cause issues with version 7 project files? With lots of functions restricted in the trial version it is difficult to fully check this. I assume all templates can be moved across or imported?

Is there a way to just upgrade version 7 to 8 and take everything with it once the full version is purschased?
That is all the projects, templates and settings.

Many thanks Ian

Hello Ian,

you can also copy the templates:

C:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\Roaming\AceBIT\ASEOPS 7\

to

C:\Users\<USERNAME>\AppData\Roaming\AceBIT\ASEOPS 8\

as well as the subdirectory \Projects\

The project files of ASEOPS 8 have more properties than files of version 7, so you may need to review the copied projects. However most of the information will be moved into new project files.
